Angiotensin II Receptor Blocker (ARB) Recalls

Valsartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker, or ARB, which works to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) in adults and children over the age of six. Valsartan works by preventing the blood vessels from narrowing, which helps to improve blood flow and lower blood pressure.

In the summer of 2018, the FDA discovered that valsartan and other ARBs contained nitrosamine impurities that exceeded FDA safety standards. Certain valsartan, irbesartan, and losartan medications were recalled, affecting millions of American patients.

Nitrosamine Impurities Found in Valsartan Products

Nitrosamines are naturally occurring compounds that are known to be carcinogenic, which means they can cause cancer in humans. In addition to being found in tobacco products, nitrosamines can be found in certain foods. Nitrosamines include N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA), and N-Nitroso-N-methyl-4-aminobutyric acid (NMBA).

Nitrosamines have been linked to health problems such as:

  • Stomach cancer
  • Liver cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Insulin resistance

Prolonged exposure to low levels of nitrosamines may be associated with:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Fatty liver disease

After seeking medical attention, we highly recommend that you discuss your legal options with a Jackson valsartan injury lawyer at our firm to see if you have grounds for an individual personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit or can participate in a class action to pursue financial compensation for your medical care, lost earnings, emotional trauma, and much more.
