Cancer Linked to Medications Containing Valsartan
Our team of trusted lawyers is accepting cases for patients who have suffered from cancer linked to medications containing Valsartan.
Valsartan, an active ingredient used in several drugs that treat heart failure and high blood pressure, is under a voluntary recall by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The recall was triggered when N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a substance that could cause cancer, was found in the recalled products.
Studies show that taking medication containing Valsartan for as little as thirty days may be be linked to liver cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, and kidney cancer. Medications containing Valsartan are common: over 1.5 million prescriptions were written for these types of medicines last year alone.
You can find the list of Valsartan-containing medications under voluntary recall by the FDA here.
What You Need To Know
NDMA, the dangerous carcinogen found in the recalled Valsartan products, is a chemical formed in both industrial and natural processes. In fact, it has been used to make softeners, lubricants, and even liquid rocket fuel. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, exposure to NDMA at high levels may cause liver damage, tumors, and fibrosis.
You shouldn’t have to worry about developing cancer simply because you are treating a serious heart or blood pressure condition. Rather, it is our desire to hold the companies who manufactured the tainted Valsartan accountable. This is why our team of lawyers is hard at work on cases of cancer linked to medications containing Valsartan. If you’ve suffered from taking a medicine or using a medical device, you need the dangerous drugs lawyer Memphis, TN trusts to handle its toughest cases.
