Tepezza (Teprotumumab) is a drug used to treat thyroid eye disease. Most TED cases occur when the patient is diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. Thyroid eye disease is an autoimmune condition where white blood cells attack the thyroid gland. As a result, the thyroid produces an excess amount of thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism). This causes inflammation and swelling of the tissue around the eye. The use of Tepezza, however, has recently been linked to permanent hearing loss and/or tinnitus, a ringing in the ears.
Cases of Tepezza users experiencing from moderate to severe hearing loss have been documented. The medical community explored the link between patients administered Teprotumumab and hearing loss. Researchers did a study by evaluating 26 patients that received at least four infusions of the drug. It was concluded that at least 65 % of the patients reported otologic symptoms (Hearing problems). Side effects and Health Conditions include, but are not limited to:
Irish company Horizon therapeutics faces various lawsuits alleging that the company aggressively marketed Tepezza without pointing out the risk of hearing loss. Studies were carried out evidencing that after at least four Tepezza infusions users developed hearing problems. Despite the numerous patient and clinical reports, Horizon Therapeutics omitted this as one of the possible side effects in its product label. Horizon therapeutics has tried in the past to get an Illinois federal judge to dismiss claims that the company failed to alert doctors that hearing impairment was a common side effect. When a product fails to perform as promised and causes an injury legal action must be taken in a swift manner. You may be able to file a Tepezza lawsuit if you or your loved one received a teprotumumab or Tepezza infusion or suffered permanent hearing loss and/or tinnitus as a result.
