What Caused Valsartan Lawsuits?
Valsartan is an Angiotensin II Receptor Blocker, better known as an ARB. In medications that are used to treat hypertension and high blood pressure, Valsartan is the main active ingredient. In addition, the drug has been used to treat a number of different conditions relating to different types of heart failure, hypertension, and several others.
Just like any other over the counter prescription drug, Valsartan has a number of side effects. However, the majority of complaints being focused on is that the drug contains carcinogens. Since the start of these cases, manufacturers are being forced to recall any of the three types of ARBs. The three types are Irbesartan, Losartan, and Valsartan.
However, the mass recall of these products only came after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued research that indicated that the drug did contain several substances that were related to causing cancer.
What Is N-Nitrosodimethylamine Or NDMA?
The EPA stated that products that contained the compound were possibly contaminated with NDMA. NDMA is better known as an organic substance that is deemed as a strong N-nitrosamine carcinogen group. The substance was also found to be semi-volatile.
However, while the chemical is still being widely produced within the United States, it is only done in an effort to perform further research on the product. Some time ago, the compound was actually used as an additive for rocket fuel, antioxidants, lubricants, and co-polymer softeners.
Ate Valsartan Lawsuits Still Being Filed?
The first recall left only a handful of cases being filed against it. However, as of December 2019, there are now over 159 legal actions being filed against the drug Valsartan.
