New treatment for TED

They are fast tracking what looks to be an effective treatment for TED, a medication that has been shown in trials to improve proptosis by 2 mm. This is exciting, especially if it becomes available soon.

New treatment for TED

Thanks for posting - this is definitely a promising option! Once the FDA determines that the filing is complete, it looks like it's the FDA's call whether to complete the approval process in an accelerated 6-month time frame (so perhaps early 2020).
