Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - Saudi Gazette report
MANAMA — Bahrain’s National Health Regulatory Authority (NHRA) has approved REGN-COV2 for emergency use, a new drug by Regeneron in collaboration with F. Hoffmann-La Roche, for the treatment of mild to moderate COVID-19 cases, the Bahrain News Agency reported on Wednesday.
REGN-COV2 contains a combination of Casirivimab and Imdevimab, which are drugs called “monoclonal antibodies,” that are designed to block viral attachment and entry into human cells to neutralize the virus.
REGN-COV2 also received emergency use approval from the US FDA to treat mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 in non-hospitalized adults and adolescents of 12 years of age and older, who weigh at least 88 pounds (40 kg), and for those who are at high risk for developing severe COVID-19 symptoms or of hospitalization.
REGN-COV2 also received a positive review from the European Medicines Agency after their analysis of the quality, safety, and efficacy aspects of the new combination.
This drug has been added to the list of approved drugs by Bahrain for the treatment of COVID-19 using antibody testing technology.
The approval reflects Bahrain's commitment to provide the latest COVID-19 medicines and treatments for all, which would prevent the severity of active cases, and reduce the risk to enter intensive care, the BNA report added.
