Late-stage trial explores whether antibody drug can help reduce infections in facilities with a diagnosed coronavirus case

Eli Lilly said that if testing is successful, its drug could get government approval by the end of the year.

Eli Lilly LLY +1.66% & Co. has started a study exploring whether its experimental Covid-19 drug can prevent infections among vulnerable residents and staff at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.

Indianapolis-based Lilly said Monday that it is testing its antibody-based drug in senior homes that have had a recently diagnosed case of Covid-19, putting residents and staff at high risk of exposure.

The study, which aims to enroll up to 2,400 subjects, will track whether Lilly’s drug reduces the rate of infection and disease in the weeks after dosing.

Lilly has been exploring whether the drug, code-named LY-CoV555, could treat other kinds of Covid-19 patients. Studies already under way are testing whether the drug is safe for hospitalized Covid-19 patients, and whether it can clear viral loads and keep patients with milder disease out of the hospital.
