Do You Qualify for Compensation in a Valsartan Lawsuit?

- Use of Valsartan for at least one year prior to diagnosis
What is Valsartan?
Valsartan is used to treat high blood pressure, recent heart attacks, and heart failure. The drug was approved by the FDA in 1996. However, it wasn’t until July 2018 that investigators identified mass contamination from a manufacturing impurity called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA).
NDMA is a probable human carcinogen that is linked to an increased risk of liver, kidney, colon, stomach, bladder and pancreatic cancer. These types of chemicals are in a class called “genotoxic impurities” and have the potential to cause serious injury, even at low levels.
What are the Side Effects of Valsartan NDMA exposure?
Short-term exposure to NDMA through Valsartan can lead to:
- Abdominal cramps
- Issues with kidneys or lungs
- Liver damage
Long-term exposure to NDMA can lead to an increased risk of developing:
- Stomach cancer
- Liver cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Colorectal cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Bladder cancer
