What Is Tepezza®?
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.
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.
What Are Tepezza® Lawsuits About?
Victims of Tepezza® are now filing lawsuits after taking the drug and suffering from 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.
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 hearing issues. 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.
Who Qualifies to File for a Tepezza® Lawsuit?
In order to qualify to file a Tepezza® lawsuit, you must have taken the drug and have experienced permanent or persistent hearing loss.. The best way to understand if you qualify to file a claim against Horizon Therapeutics is by speaking to a Tepezza® attorney as soon as possible. Depending on your state, there may be a statute of limitations for filing a claim, ranging from two to four years on average depending on the State. If you suspect that you may have lost your hearing after taking Tepezza®, do not wait to speak with an attorney.
Is Tepezza® Linked to Hearing Loss?
Yes, according to a study published in the Journal of the Endocrine Society in March 2021, it was found that 65% of patients who received Tepezza® reported some level of hearing damage or ringing in the ears. Since the release of the TED treatment drug, there have been multiple lawsuits against Horizon Therapeutics® for failing to adequately warn doctors and patients about the side effects of Tepezza®.
