President Donald Trump is receiving experimental treatment of synthetic antibodies against COVID-19, his doctor said Friday, and is “tired but in good spirits”.
Trump received a single dose of Regeneron’s antibody cocktail, according to a letter from White House Doctor Sean Conley.
The treatment is in clinical trials but has not received regulatory approval.
“It is being assessed by a team of experts and together we will provide recommendations to the President and First Lady on the best next steps,” said Conley.
Treatment with Regeneron COVID-19 is starting with end-stage studies
