Increasing Approval of Drugs for the Treatment of Thyroid Eye Disease

In January 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved teprotumumab-trbw (Tepezza, Horizon Therapeutics), which is considered the first medicine approved for the treatment of thyroid eye disease. Before the approval of teprotumumab-trbw, patients suffering from thyroid eye disease had to wait for approximately three years or more for their condition to go from acute phase to chronic phase for a series of surgeries to help restore vision and appearance of their eyes. At week 24, 82.9% of patients treated with teprotumumab-trbw had a 2-mm reduction in proptosis, compared to 9.5% of patients treated with placebo, with no deterioration in the other eye in the Tepezza phase 3 clinical trial. In Addition, according to FDA, 67.9% of patients treated with teprotumumab-trbw had at least 1-grade baseline change in diplopia at week 24 compared with 28.6% of patients treated with placebo. Thus, teprotumumab-trbw has changed the way doctors treat patients suffering from thyroid eye disease. Doctors now have a dedicated medicine that addresses the disease's primary causes, potentially reversing the disease's progression. Thus, the market for thyroid eye disease is growing due to increased technical breakthroughs and medicinal approvals.

Close contact, aerosols, droplets, and others are the most common routes for the transfer of COVID-19. Thus, ophthalmologist centers are at the highest risk of infection due to exposure to these viral particles. In typical face-to-face ocular clinical examinations the slit lamp or direct ophthalmoscope is used in close proximity to the patient, thereby increasing the chances of contracting the coronavirus. Moreover numerous hospitals and clinics were used for treating COVID-19 patients, which resulted in delays in treatment and surgery.
