The Blood Pressure Drug “Valsartan” Has Been Linked To Cancer

Certain batches of the blood-pressure drug “Valsartan” (a generic version of Diovan) were contaminated and caused some people to develop certain cancers and other conditions including:

  • Colorectal Cancer
  • Esophageal Cancer
  • Intestinal Cancer
  • Leukemia Cancer
  • Stomach Cancer
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer

What is Valsartan?

Valsartan is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs known as angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs). It is commonly used to treat conditions such as high blood pressure (hypertension), heart failure, and to improve survival after a heart attack. 

 

Valsartan works by blocking the action of angiotensin II, which relaxes blood vessels, helps to lower blood pressure, and reduces the workload on the heart. This can be beneficial in managing hypertension and other cardiovascular conditions.

What is the Valsartan lawsuit?

In 2018, the FDA recalled Valsartan due to the detection of impurities in certain batches of valsartan-containing medications, such as N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). NDMA is classified as a probable human carcinogen, meaning it may increase the risk of cancer if exposure is prolonged. 

 

If you or a loved one took Valsartan and were diagnosed with cancer, you may be entitled to significant compensation. Contact our lawyers for a Free Case Review today.

Types of Contamination

N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA), and N-Methylnitrosobutyric acid (NMBA) are chemical compounds that belong to the class of nitrosamines. These substances have been found to be impurities in certain medications, including some formulations of the angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) like valsartan.

 

These impurities were detected in some batches of these medications, leading to recalls and regulatory actions. NDMA, NDEA, and NMBA are classified as probable human carcinogens, indicating that prolonged exposure to high levels may increase the risk of cancer.
