LONDON - Another potentially life-saving treatment for hospitalized Covid-19 patients has been discovered by researchers at the University of Oxford.

The British study — part of the wider RECOVERY trial investigating various possible treatments for people hospitalized with coronavirus — found that an antibody combination made by Regeneron reduces the risk of death when given to patients with severe Covid-19 who have not mounted a natural antibody response of their own.

The treatment uses a "cocktail" of two monoclonal antibodies (casirivimab and imdevimab, known as 'REGEN-COV' in the U.S.) that bind specifically to two different sites on the coronavirus spike protein, neutralizing the ability of the virus to infect cells.
