Clinical Research

Holy Name Offering New Clinical Trial Focused on Preventing COVID-19

Do you have a member of your household with COVID-19? If you do and you are 18 years or older, you may qualify to enroll in a clinical trial involving a treatment therapy being evaluated for its ability to prevent the infection.

This study is conducted by The Institute for Clinical Research at Holy Name Medical Center, which is currently the only hospital in the region with this treatment available.

Because of continued low level spread, there are some exposed household members in Bergen County, including parents and grandparents who are at higher risk for severe infections.


  • The study involves a single injection of two new synthetic antibodies against the coronavirus.
  • These antibodies are created in a laboratory, are not a blood product, and do not come from a human source.
  • This is a blind study, which means 50% of participants will receive the drug and 50% will receive a placebo.
  • Based on early data, this study has an excellent safety profile and is considered low-risk.


  • You must be 18 years or older to qualify.
  • You must call within the first 96 hours after someone in your household tests positive. (Please note: If additional family members test positive, the window of opportunity to enroll is reset to the date and time of the most recent positive test.)
  • If you or household members develop symptoms, you may qualify for an additional controlled study of treatment, rather than prevention, using the same medication.


  • Call Dr. Thomas Birch, Medical Director of the Institute for Clinical Research,
    at (201) 833-7274.
  • Participants will be screened for eligibility and then scheduled to visit the Holy Name Medical Center ER for evaluation, testing and small injections.
  • There are no charges for this evaluation. Participants will be followed up weekly for four weeks and then monthly for 6 months. The subject is paid $125 for each visit.
