Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-2019) there has been little empiric evidence as to the efficacy of therapies to help guide the management of this disease. In this webinar, we have experts discussing three different therapies that could be effective in the treatment of COVID: convalescent plasma, serum obtained patients who have recovered from COVID; clazakizumab, a monoclonal antibody that binds to human IL-6; and remdisivir, a nucleotide analog with broad-spectrum antiviral activity. This webinar will be moderated by May Lee, MD from University of Southern California and Isabel Pedraza, MD from Cedars Sinai Medical Center.
