Many locations in Arkansas are offering monoclonal antibody treatments to fight COVID-19 effects. Here's where you can find them in the state.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — While thousands of people in Arkansas continue to test positive for COVID-19, monoclonal antibody infusions are now in high demand.

What are monoclonal antibodies? 

According to the Arkansas Department of Health, monoclonal antibodies are laboratory-made proteins that mimic your immune system’s ability to fight off harmful viruses.  

In November, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an Emergency Use Authorization to allow the use of monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 in adults and pediatric patients. 

Who can get this treatment?

Multiple locations in Arkansas are receiving monoclonal antibodies treatment, which is available to anyone 12 years old and up who tests positive for COVID-19 and is at a high risk of severe illness.

The Arkansas Department of Health said non-hospitalized patients with mild to moderate symptoms with less than 10 days since symptom onset & high-risk factors including:

  • Age>65
  • Obesity BMI>25
  • Pregnancy
  • Diabetes, any immunosuppression, and heart or lung disease, or chronic kidney disease
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Neurodevelopmental disorders (for example, cerebral palsy
  • Having a medical-related technological dependence (for example, tracheostomy, gastrostomy, or positive pressure ventilation (not related to COVID 19
