The Food and Drug Administration on Saturday granted an emergency use authorization for Regeneron’s Covid-19 antibody treatment, the experimental therapy given to President Donald Trump when he contracted the coronavirus in October.

Regeneron submitted an emergency use application that month after preclinical studies showed that the therapy, called REGN-COV2, reduced the amount of virus and associated damage in the lungs of non-human primates. The company said trial data also shows the drug reduces medical visits in patients with mild-to-moderate Covid-19.
