Antibody infusions a ‘game-changer’ in fight against Covid

The first wave of Covid-19 peaked in the Flathead Valley exactly a year ago this week. Active cases in the county climbed to nearly 2,500 — the highest of the entire pandemic — and statewide hospitalizations and deaths were rising at an alarming rate.

While vaccinations were still being developed at that time, promising research on how to treat Covid was emerging. A trio with Logan Health’s infusion therapy team in Kalispell took notice and were particularly hopeful about clinical trials using monoclonal antibody treatments to treat mild to moderate Covid symptoms in compromised patients.
