Since November 2020, Emergent Health has been partnered with St. Joseph Mercy Hospital to administer monoclonal antibody (mAb) infusion to COVID-19 patients. The infusions are performed through our Huron Valley Ambulance Community Paramedic program.
Data from our work with the mAb infusion clinics were included in a study on the efficacy of this treatment for COVID-positive and exposed patients. Results from the study were published in the JAMA Network Open.
