What is Tepezza®?

Tepezza®, the brand name for Teprotumumab, is the first ever FDA-approved medication used to treat Thyroid Eye Disease (TED), which is typically caused by Graves Disease. Unfortunately, studies have shown that up to 65% of patients who received Tepezza infusions suffered serious hearing complications.

  • Ringing in the ears (Tinnitus)
  • Hearing loss
  • Sensation of ears feeling “plugged”
  • Autophony (enhanced perception of your own bodily sounds, especially voice and breathing)

Horizon Therapeutics

Tepezza's manufacturer, Horizon Therapeutics, reported in its own clinical trials that only approximately 10% of Tepezza® users noticed hearing complications. Many other recent studies show the percentage was much higher. Horizon also reported that their clinical trials showed the hearing-related side effects were mostly temporary. But other studies have reported these symptoms persisted even after discontinuing use of the drug.

Failing to Properly Warn Patients and their Doctors

While Tepezza® has been shown to be effective in treating TED, the manufacturer may have failed to properly warn patients and their doctors about the severity of hearing-related risks associated with its use. Numerous published studies have come to light showing the hearing-related risks could occur in as many as 65% of patients that received Tepezza infusions, and worse, the hearing loss and other resulting complications may be PERMANENT.

The authors of these recent studies recommend that doctors closely monitor the patients’ hearing during and after Tepezza® treatments, and even establish a baseline of audiologic health prior to starting the therapy. The patients should also be made aware that the treatments may cause permanent hearing loss. Only in this way can doctors and patients accurately weigh the risks and potential benefits of using Tepezza®.
