NIH – The COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel’s Interim Statement on Patient Prioritization for Outpatient MAB When There Are Logistical or Supply Constraints

Last Updated: December 23, 2021

The COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines Panel (the Panel) has recommended several therapeutic agents for the treatment and prevention of SARS-CoV-2 infection in individuals who are at high risk for progression to severe COVID-19. These anti-SARS-CoV-2 therapeutics are of greatest benefit for nonhospitalized patients who have risk factors for progression to severe COVID-19. The risks for progression are substantially higher for those who are not vaccinated or who are vaccinated but not expected to mount an adequate immune response to the vaccine.
