Posted: 2021-11-25 20:00:00
BACKGROUND The use of monoclonal antibodies therapy (MAT) in early mild to moderate Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has gained importance in recent times. However, there is limited information on the safety and efficacy of MAT in treating COVID-19 in patients with underlying rheumatologic diseases. Patients with rheumatologic diseases are usually on long-term corticosteroids and immunosuppressive therapy, which increases their risk for progressing to more severe forms of COVID-19. We report a case series of 4 patients with rheumatologic diseases who were treated with MAT for COVID-19. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective observational study was conducted in our institution on patients with underlying rheumatological disorders who received MAT as per the EUA protocol of the FDA. RESULTS Two of the 4 patients were on immunosuppresive therapy at the time of receiving MAT. They recovered from COVID-19 without any adverse outcomes. No flare of underlying rheumatologic disease was noted. CONCLUSIONS MAT was observed to be a safe and effective therapy in 4 patients with rheumatological illnesses and COVID-19 treated at our hospital.
