TARRYTOWN, N.Y., April 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: REGN) announced today that newly updated National Institutes of Health (NIH) COVID-19 Treatment Guidelines strongly recommend that REGEN-COV™ (casirivimab with imdevimab) be used in non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients (“outpatients”) at high risk of clinical progression. The Category ‘AIIa’ is a ‘strong’ rating based on results of randomized trials.
