What are the Inova Infusion Clinics?

These clinics have been launched to help our patients access outpatient therapies such as monoclonal antibody treatment when available.

The Inova Infusion Clinics are accepting referrals for patients from all Inova Emergency Rooms, Inova Urgent Care Centers, Inova Primary Care Offices, as well as community practices.

What are monoclonal antibodies?

Monoclonal antibodies are laboratory-made proteins that mimic the immune system’s ability to fight off harmful antigens such as viruses. The monoclonal antibody treatments offered specifically target the spike protein.

Bebtelovimab is the monoclonal antibody treatment in current use at Inova. Some information about Bebtelovimab:

  • It is approved for use by the FDA under the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the treatment of mild to moderate symptoms of all three strains of Covid-19, including Delta, Omicron and Omicron subvariants BA 1.1, BA.2, in adults and children over 12 years, and weighing at least 88 pounds.
  • It is given intravenously over at least 30 seconds via IV push.
  • Patients will be required to remain under observation for one hour post infusion.
