Moscow was the first in Russia to start using the latest drugs from the group of monoclonal virus-neutralizing antibodies. All over the world, they are used to treat patients at an early stage of COVID-19 disease who have risks of a severe course of the disease.

The patients who were first recommended a new therapy were pregnant women with a coronavirus infection. In Moscow, new algorithms for providing medical care have been developed for them. On the basis of the Filatov city clinical hospital No. 15 and the city clinical hospital No. 52 opened special hospitals for short-term stay, and the condition of women began to be monitored by obstetricians and gynecologists, including the telemedicine center.  These two clinics have extensive experience in treating patients with coronavirus.

"According to the conclusion of the medical commission, it is possible to use drugs from the group of monoclonal virus-neutralizing antibodies for the treatment of women with COVID-19 during pregnancy. To date, more than 70 patients have received this therapy in Moscow. No adverse events were registered when using the drugs, but rapid neutralization of the virus and improvement in the condition of the patients were noted. Today, such therapy is successfully used in the United States, France, Germany, Italy and other countries," Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Moscow Mayor for Social Development told.

Experts note that during pregnancy, women are more susceptible to respiratory viral infections due to physiological changes in the body. At the same time, they are at risk for severe SARS and COVID-19.

In May, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the emergency use of recombinant monoclonal antibodies for the treatment of early stages of coronavirus at adults and adolescents. The European Medicines Agency also issued a positive scientific conclusion. And the Ministry of Health of Russia has allowed the temporary circulation in the country and importation of medicines from this group.
