At Horizon, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its effect on our communities. For the safety of our patients, healthcare professionals and our employees, we will continue to provide virtual assistance to physicians, patients and partners, as well as in-person, field-based support where state and local government guidelines allow. Regardless of where we are working, all of our patient and physician support services continue to be available and we remain fully committed to all of our communities during this unprecedented time.
Our Patients and Our Medicines
- As always, our priority is ensuring patients have access to our medicines.
- On Dec. 17, Horizon announced that it expects a short-term disruption in TEPEZZA® (teprotumumab-trbw) supply as a result of recent government-mandated COVID-19 vaccine production orders related to Operation Warp Speed. For more information, please read our statement.
- At this time, we expect no further impact on the supply of our other medicines. We continue to closely monitor our supply chain and will provide updates as necessary.
- All of our patient services and financial support programs will continue to be available without interruption.
- Patients currently prescribed a Horizon medicine who have a question should speak to their healthcare professional. In addition, if you are a patient who has a question specifically for Horizon, please contact our patient support team (the following link includes pertinent support team information for each of Horizon’s medicines): https://www.horizontherapeutics.com/patients/patient-support.
- The health and safety of patients enrolled or who may enroll in one of our clinical trials, as well as the investigators and staff administering the trials are paramount.
- Our trials are currently ongoing and patients who have any questions should reach out directly to their treating physician.
