Studies link TEPEZZA® (also known as Teprotumumab) with serious hearing complications

Victims of one of the following hearing problems after taking TEPEZZA® for thyroid eye disease should check eligibility for compensation now:

  • Hearing loss—also called hyperacusis
  • Tinnitus—or ringing in the ears
  • Autophony—or enhanced perception of own bodily sounds, like voice & breathing
  • Sensations of ears being “plugged” or “full”

We urge victims that suffer hearing problems after taking TEPEZZA® for thyroid eye disease to get a free, private case evaluation.

Victims that experienced hearing loss (or other hearing issues) after receiving IV infusions of TEPEZZA®—the first-ever FDA-approved drug for thyroid eye disease (TED)---should pay attention to this crucial information.

TEPEZZA® has shown to be an effective drug for treating Thyroid Eye Disease (TED), typically caused by Grave's disease.

However, the manufacturer may have failed to properly warn patients and their doctors about the severity of hearing-related risks.

Some studies reported that as much as 65% of patients who received TEPEZZA® infusions suffered hearing-related side effects—many of which appear to be irreversible.

The manufacturer of TEPEZZA®, Horizon Therapeutics, reported in their pre-market and post-market clinical trials that only 10% of those who received TEPEZZA® reported hearing complications—which happens to be far less than what many other recent studies show.

Also, the manufacturer reported that the hearing-related side effects reported in their own clinical trials were mostly “temporary”, whereas other studies have reported that hearing-related side effects were persisting even after discontinuation of TEPEZZA®—and may be permanent.

For many patients suffering from thyroid eye disease (TED), the reported 10% rate of temporary hearing problems during treatments was well worth the risk.

But numerous published studies have come to light, showing that hearing-related risks could be as high as 65% in patients.

Those that suffered permanent hearing loss or tinnitus due to TEPEZZA® infusions may incur astronomical healthcare costs for the remainder of their life.

An Update to the TEPEZZA® and Thyroid Eye Disease (TED) Relationship

The US FDA has given the green light for Horizon Therapeutics’ TEPEZZA® (teprotumumab-trbw) label to include new information about treating thyroid eye disease (TED) patients, no matter how long they have had the disease or how active it is.

TEPEZZA®, an insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor inhibitor, is the first and only medicine FDA-approved for TED. This rare autoimmune disease can worsen over time, affecting vision and causing debilitation.

Horizon Therapeutics' CEO, Tim Walbert, shared, “We collaborated closely with the FDA for this important label update, showing how TEPEZZA® can help people with thyroid eye disease, regardless of how active or long-lasting their condition is."

Previously, TEPEZZA® was already approved for treating thyroid eye disease, but this new label update emphasizes its use for all patients dealing with the full range of the disease's effects.

Health insurance companies are already trying to find ways to limit their liability and coverages for these new, advanced hearing tests and hearing aids due to their ever-increasing costs.

There is a very small window of time for victims to seek financial compensation after an injury, and the time window for pursuing a case is different in each state.

Those who qualify may request a free, private case evaluation by a personal injury attorney with the potential to receive compensation for losses.
