Regeneron asks FDA for emergency approval of COVID-19 antibody treatment given to Trump
The safety and effectiveness of Regeneron’s antibody treatment have not yet been proven. Regeneron announced Wednesday that it has submitted an Emergency Use Authorization request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its COVID-19 antibody treatment. The company says that if the drug is approved, the government has committed to making the drug available to Americans at no cost. Trump has explicitly that he would like to make the drug available and free for everyone. Regeneron says they currently have doses of the drug available for about 50,000 patients and expect to have enough for 300,000 patients within the coming months.
