Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Extraocular muscle infiltration and edema exam by evaluating (at Day 0 and Weeks 4, 8 and 12): extraocular muscle size, proptosis and intraocular pressure (tonometry)
  • Eye inspection (at Day 0 and Weeks 4, 8 and 12): assessment of conjunctival injection presence, chemosis, cheratitis and eyelid edema; extrinsic muscle function evaluation and eyelid retraction

Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: January 2006
Study Completion Date: April 2007
Primary Completion Date: April 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with autoimmune thyroid disease and whose centre's medical records confirm the presence of euthyroidism for at least two months before being included into the study
  • Thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy diagnosed a minimum of six months before his/her participation in the study, well documented in the centre's medical records and based on the moderate intensity of thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy in the worst eye
  • Patients whose ophthalmopathy activity has been demonstrated by a positive octreoscan

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The patient presents compressive optical neuropathy signs which require immediate surgical treatment or suffers from serious intensity thyroid ophthalmopathy
  • The patient has been treated with radio-iodine for his/her thyroid disturbance in the past 6 months
  • The patient's thyroid-associated ophthalmopathy has been treated previously (except for drops and local measures) or is planned to be treated with radio-iodine or thyroidectomy for his/her autoimmune thyroid disease during the study or suffers from myopia, glaucoma or any other eye disease which could modify the ophthalmological progress
  • The patient is a smoker of more than 5 cigarettes per day
