Valsartan is a generic antihypertensive drug used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. The brand name is known as Diovan. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recently recalled several drugs containing valsartan when an impurity was detected in a research setting.
The impurity, N-nitrosdimethylamine (NDMA), is considered a possible human carcinogen, based on laboratory testing. The current assumption is the NDMA’s presence was brought about when the manufacturing process was changed.
