Study Links Tepezza to Hearing Loss
Horizon Therapeutics finally addressed the concerns around Tepezza in early 2022. According to a hearing the company hosted, about one-in-ten Tepezza users reported a “hearing-related event.”
Although 10% of Tepezza users potentially losing their hearing is concerning, an independent study published by the American Journal of Ophthalmology raises an even larger red flag. Based on that study, more than 80% of Tepezza users might have suffered from some form of hearing problems after using the drug. Certain users have even reported suffering tinnitus or hearing loss in as little as three doses of Tepezza.
Holding Horizon Therapeutics Liable
According to researchers and multiple studies, Tepezza (teprotumumab-trbw) has a clear link to an increased risk of hearing loss or tinnitus. However, Horizon Therapeutics seemingly ignored this risk and did nothing to warn doctors and patients about it. The product was sold on the market well after the pharmaceutical company should have reasonably known about this risk.
Tepezza lists these side effects and several others:
- Infusion reactions
- Worsening of IBS
It does not list hearing loss or tinnitus as a potential risk. This complete lack of warning could indicate manufacturer negligence or a product defective through insufficient information. If it can be proven or argued well, then Horizon Therapeutics could be held liable for all the damages and harm caused by its defective drug.
