COVID-19 hyperimmune immunoglobulin contains purified antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

It is made from the convalescent plasma of individuals recently infected with COVID-19.

This COVID-19 hyperimmune immunoglobulin has the potential to protect and treat against COVID-19 and this study is the first step in evaluating the effectiveness of this therapy.

Who’s Eligible

Mount Sinai’s COVID Clinical Trials Unit is looking for healthy individuals (ages 18-60) who have never tested positive for COVID-19 nor have received any COVID-19 vaccines.

One overnight stay is required. Compensation for time and travel will be provided.
