Intervention Details:
    Biological: MGAWN1
    Humanized monoclonal to West Nile virus. Dose=30mg/kg
Detailed Description:
The objective of this study is to provide expanded access to MGAWN1; the study is not intended for subjects who are eligible for and have access to non-expanded access protocols.

Ages Eligible for Study:   8 Years and older   (Child, Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. For West Nile Neuroinvasive Disease subjects: Have neurological signs and/or symptoms of West Nile meningitis, encephalitis, and/or acute flaccid paralysis
  2. For immunocompromised subjects with suspected West Nile virus infection:

    • Receiving immunosuppressive treatment for any disease, such as autoimmune diseases, or transplant recipients; or
    • Have received organs or tissues or cells from donors likely infected with West Nile virus (as shown by serology or PCR/NAT from the donor, organs, or tissues) or
    • Have acquired immunodeficiency (other than from immunosuppressive treatment or from receiving infected transplants) or congenital immunodeficiency
  3. For subjects with substantial exposure to West Nile virus: Exposure by any route, including percutaneous, inhalation, or mucosal exposure (such as might occur in a laboratory accident)
  4. Develop signs and/or symptoms within 14 days before study enrollment
