Notably, the finding that there wasn't a safety issue in the hospital trial could remove a potential roadblock to emergency authorization that Lilly is seeking for using the antibody in patients outside of the hospital.
The study of the monoclonal antibody called bamlanivimab was initially paused by the company on October 13 out of "an abundance of caution", because of a potential safety concern.
In a statement on Monday, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which was sponsoring the trial, said the antibody treatment did not have any safety risk.
Lilly's drug, code named LY-CoV555, is essentially a clone of immune-system agents known as antibodies that fight infections. Remdesivir is approved to treat serious hospitalized Covid-19 patients.

Eli Lilly and Co LLY.N fell short of analysts' expectations for third-quarter profit on Tuesday due to increased costs to develop COVID-19 therapies and lower demand for some its major drugs, including diabetes treatment Trulicity.
Based on that study, Lilly asked the FDA earlier this month to authorize emergency use of the antibody in nonhospitalized people with recently diagnosed mild-to-moderate Covid-19. That trial is continuing, Lilly said, and company-sponsored studies of the antibody therapy also continued unaffected. In contrast to the hospital trial results, a trial in this group of patients has produced promising results in September. Company officials said they "remain confident ... that bamlanivimab monotherapy may prevent progression of disease for those earlier in the course of COVID-19".
Lilly is now in talks with Operation Warp Speed for supply, Chief Executive Officer David Ricks told Bloomberg earlier in the month.
