Some patients who have had severe COVID-19 develop irreversible lung scarring that requires a lung transplant. Temple Lung Center has the largest volume lung transplant program in the country and has experience transplanting patients who have had COVID-19.
Participate in Clinical Trials
Researchers and clinicians at the Temple Lung Center and the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University are engaged in groundbreaking clinical trials to evaluate new treatments that may lessen the severity of COVID-19, prevent hospitalization, and harness the power of our immune systems in the fight against the disease.
The first step in keeping you safe from the virus that causes COVID-19 is prevention. The COVID-19 vaccine decreases your risk of getting the virus. It also helps you from becoming seriously ill if you do get COVID-19.
Temple offers life-saving vaccines to those age 12+ in the Philadelphia region and to residents in the state of Pennsylvania.
COVID Monoclonal Antibody Infusion
If you’re diagnosed with COVID-19 and are older than 65 or have chronic health conditions, you may benefit from antibody infusion. The Temple Lung Center offers several antibody therapies that help give your immune system a boost to fight off disease.
