For those with severe inflammation from thyroid eye disease, the treatment options historically are limited and often require surgical removal of some of the bones or fat in the eye socket.
That is, until earlier this year when a new medication became available.
Dr. Madina Falcone, an oculoplastics and orbital reconstructive surgeon at UConn Health, says thyroid eye disease’s manner of development is complex and not completely understood.
The FDA approved the first drug for the treatment of thyroid eye disease, teprotumumab, earlier this year, sold under the trade name Tepezza.
“Simply put, Tepezza binds to specialized receptors in the tissues of the eye socket and blocks them, thereby decreasing the inflammation in the orbit,” Falcone says.
