Combination injection or IV administration

What the study did: The researchers assessed whether receiving the monoclonal antibodies casirivimab and imdevimab by injection was associated with reduced hospitalizations and deaths compared to no treatment in patients with COVID-19 and whether the results were similar if they were administered by injection or intravenously. Administration by injection may increase the capacity for outpatient treatment, but its effectiveness is unknown.
