UAE introduces new antibody treatment

The RAK Hospital in Ras Al Khaimah is the first hospital to offer advanced monoclonal antibody treatment in the UAE.

The injection Bamlanivimab, which recently arrived in the UAE, has been authorised for emergency use by the US FDA to treat mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 in non-hospitalised adults positive for COVID-19, as well as high-risk individuals.

Monoclonal Antibodies (A) are laboratory-made proteins that mimic the immune system’s ability to fight off harmful antigens such as viruses like Covid-19.
