Bamlanivimab and Etesevimab (administered together) and REGEN-COV (casirivimab and imdevimab) authorization for use in the U.S. was rescinded by the FDA due to a lack of efficacy against the Omicron variant of COVID-19. Additionally, as of 4/5/2022, the use of Sotrovimab is also no longer authorized by the FDA due to evidence of reduced efficacy against the Omicron sub-variant BA.2. Lastly, the dosing for Pxalovid was updated on 4/14/2022 to reflect recommendations for renal dosing.
