Bebtelovimab infusion

Hi all,

My 20 year old son who is the kidney transplant recipient tested positive for Covid yesterday and his doctor approved the monoclonal antibody treatment. I am wondering how others have responded to Covid and the Bebtelovimab infusion?

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

    I’m curious as well. I’m pre-transplant, and have not had Covid. But transplant is soon. I hope your son is responding to meds and healing well.

    I don't have answers. I've been lucky enough to not have contracted Covid. But I am sending well wishes to you and your son, and hoping he gets better soon. Keep us posted!

    I'm 66 years old and had a kidney transplant 18 years ago. I opted to take the MA's for my second case of Covid. Treatment was easy with no side effects. I received them on the 6th or 7th day since exposure which matters. Would do it again it needed.

    Good Luck!
