ANGIOTENSIN II RECEPTOR BLOCKER (ARB) LAWSUITS

Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers, commonly known as Valsartan, Losartan, and Irbesartan, are used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. These medications have been subject to voluntary recalls following the detection of various impurities known as N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), N-Nitroso-N-methyl-4-aminobutyric acid (NMBA) and N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA) in the recalled medications. NDMA, NMBA and NDEA are known as probable human carcinogens.

What is Angiotensin II Receptor Blocker?

Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers treat heart conditions by lowering blood pressure to enable the heart to pump blood more easily. Angiotensin narrows blood vessels which can raise blood pressure. Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers block angiotensin II and enable veins and arteries to dilate. Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers also treat symptoms in patients with chronic kidney disease, heart failure, and kidney failure resulting from diabetes.

What is Happening with Angiotensin II Receptor Blocker?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released a series of warnings about voluntary recalls of various Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers, including Valsartan, Losartan, and Irbesartan, due to concerns about the presence of a cancer-causing ingredient in higher-than-allowable levels according to FDA standards. In its most recent statement on September 19, the FDA announced that Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited expanded its recall to include additional lots of Losartan Potassium Tablets USP and Losartan Potassium/hydrochlorothiazide tablets because of contamination with NMBA. This is the manufacturer’s fifth recall of this product.

The FDA has been issuing notices related to the contamination and voluntary recalls of Valsartan, Losartan, and Irbesartan since July 2018. The FDA continues to monitor levels of the impurities in the target medications and is evaluating how these carcinogens may have formed in Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers. NDMA, NMBA and NDEA have been associated with liver damage and increased risks of liver, kidney, and lung tumors.
