Tekturna and Aliskiren Lawsuits

On February 17, 2012 the drug company Novartis reported that it would revise the drug labeling of Aliskiren, marketed as Tekturna in the United States, after early results from a study revealed and increase incidence of strokes, kidney complications, hyperkalemia, and low blood pressure after 18-24 months of use.

The European Medicines Agency (EMA) also requested that Novartis warn against the use of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) when using Aliskiren.

The ALTITUDE study, where Novartis was examining the use of Tekturna with ACE inhibitors and ARB, was terminated in December 2011 after learning of these unexpected results. Patients using Tekturna with an ACE inhibitor or an ARB are recommended to contact their doctors immediately.
