The research so far shows that for certain people, taking this drug may help limit the amount of virus in the body. This may help their symptoms improve sooner — and they may be less likely to need to go to the hospital. But bamlanivimab is a new drug that’s still being studied, so there’s a lot that scientists don’t know about the benefits and risks. In this easy-to-read guide, you’ll learn about COVID-19 and this new treatment — including its possible benefits and side effects. Together, you and your doctor can decide if this treatment could be an option for you.
