If you've been diagnosed with thyroid eye disease, you know that the current options leave much to be desired: wait, wait, wait, wait some more -- and eventually get approved for one or more surgeries to address bulging, swelling, and double vision. (With steroid therapy sometimes used as a temporary stopgap). However, the successful trial of a brand new drug could prove to be a game-changer for patients living with this disfiguring and frustrating condition. The New England Journal of Medicine recently published "Teprotumumab for Thyroid-Associated Ophthalmopathy". The authors included GDATF Chief Medical and Scientific Officer Dr. Terry Smith as well as GDATF Physician Advisory Board Members Dr. Raymond Douglas and Dr. George Kahaly.
