Has anyone else heard about this from their transplant teams?
Apparently it's being used in transplant patients with covid, and has to be started within the first 5 days of their symptoms?
No, hadn't heard of it. Have only really heard about Evusheld being authorized as a prophylactic treatment for immunosuppressed/high risk adults. I'll ask my center what they're using for us if we get covid.
Yes. I'll just attach image of the message Duke sent last week to transplant patients.
They also discuss Evusheld as well and will reach out personally if they feel you qualify.
Thanks for sharing this. So much new information, it's hard to keep up, but overall best advice since we each are unique individuals, be sure to contact YOUR transplant team for THEIR advice for YOU (unique YOU!)
@JimGleason_TRIO absolutely! Every body is different
Really great that you brought this up @AliEm14 - of course your team needs to be consulted @JimGleason_TRIO BUT they sometimes need a small gentle kick to act….
And sometimes a giant kick. 😅
My team hasn't mentioned any treatments especially for transplant, but they did send out a letter saying "NO PAXLOVID"
I’ve never even heard of any of these other ones. The first one ever mentioned to me was sotormivab. It seems like every centre has their own protocol when treating patients. Which is fine but means it’s so hard to find anything consistent across the board
