Our work gets us noticed. UBMD physicians make headlines for raising the bar on clinical care, leading community health initatives and conducting groundbreaking research, among other advancements and accomplishments.
Vaccinations may be dominating the headlines, but clinicians are well aware that an effective treatment for COVID-19 — especially for patients who don’t require hospitalization — is still sorely needed.
UPDATE: As of 4/13/2021, the Johnson & Johnson (J&J/Janssen) vaccine has been paused by the FDA and CDC. Currently in NYS, the J&J vaccine is not being offered. Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are still being distributed.
To find an effective medication for mild to moderate cases in non-hospitalized patients, a clinical trial underway at UB is testing drugs, including monoclonal antibody medications, in people with mild to moderate cases of COVID-19.
Our physicians are more than caregivers and experts in their field, they are also researchers and professors at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo. We look for opportunities for you to participate in our research and provide innovative care for our patients not available elsewhere in the community.
