Tepezza (teprotumumab-trbw) is a prescription drug that was developed by Horizon Therapeutics® for a condition known as Graves' eye disease and the treatment of thyroid eye disease (TED). TED is a condition that occurs when the eye muscles, tear glands, eyelids, and the fatty tissue behind the eyes become inflamed. The eye inflammation is triggered through an abnormal autoimmune response and can cause the eyes to swell and obstruct vision.
HOW DOES TEPEZZA WORK?
Tepezza works by blocking a specific protein that is believed to be the cause of the development of TED. The eye treatment drug is administered through injection about every three weeks for roughly five months. Approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in January 2020, it was the first medication approved for TED.
ARE TEPEZZA LAWSUITS ABOUT TEPEZZA HEARING LOSS?
Victims of Tepezza are now filing lawsuits after taking the drug and suffering from Tepezza hearing loss. According to the lawsuits, the labels on the drug did not warn patients or doctors about the potential risk for hearing loss nor did it warn how these issues could be permanent to those taking the eye drug. If you suffered Tepezza hearing loss or other serious Tepezza side effects, contact Nashville Tepezza lawyer Timothy L. Miles today for a free case evaluation to see if you are eligible for a Tepezza lawsuit and possibly entitled to substantial compensation.
TEPEZZA HEARING LOSS
In January 2020, the FDA approved Tepezza, the only drug known to treat TED, based on clinical trials that documented only 10% of patients reporting Tepezza hearing loss. However, a 2021 study found that patients taking Tepezza are at a 65% higher risk for developing temporary and even permanent hearing issues, making it over six times higher than the original estimated risk of hearing loss disclosed by Horizon during the FDA approval process.
