DrugDrug NameDrug Description
DB01340CilazaprilCilazapril is an ACE inhibtor class drug used in the treatment of hypertension and heart failure. It belongs to the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors) class of drugs. It is a prodrug that is hydrolyzed after absorption to its main metabolite cilazaprilat. It is branded as Inhibace in Canada and other countries, Vascace and Dynorm in a number of European countries, among many other names. None of these varieties are available in the United States.
DB00177ValsartanValsartan is an angiotensin-receptor blocker (ARB) that may be used to manage hypertension and heart failure. Many studies have demonstrated the efficacy of valsartan in reducing blood pressure (BP) in many patient populations (including elderly, women, children, obese patients, patients with diabetes mellitus, patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), patients at high risk of cardiovascular (CV) disease, African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Asians) and in improving the clinical outcome in cardiovascular (CV) disease and chronic kidney disease (CKD) [A174124]. Valsartan was initially approved in 1996 in Europe for the treatment of hypertension in adults. Shortly after, in 1997, this drug was approved in the United States [A174124]. This drug is generally well-tolerated with a side-effect profile superior to that of other antihypertensive drugs [A174130], [A174133].
