Rasilez has received regulatory approval in China as a treatment of high blood pressure, either alone or in combination with other high blood pressure medicines.
Novartis‘ drug inhibits the activity of renin, an enzyme produced by the kidney that triggers a process that may lead to high blood pressure, the leading preventable cause of death in China.
It provides significant blood pressure reductions lasting at least 24 hours, alone or in combination with other anti-hypertensives.
Rasilez is the trade name for aliskiren, except in the US where it is known as Tekturna, and is approved in over 80 countries.
Around 153 million adults in China suffer from high blood pressure, with the majority of patients not reaching their optimal treatment goal.
