Researchers at the Tehran-based Abidi Pharmaceutical Company have produced medication for controlling blood pressure. The combination therapy tablet is a mix of amlodipine and valsartan, and is marketed under the commercial name ‘Valzomix.’ It is prescribed for treating vascular and cardiac conditions, said a press release from the company. Based on Health Ministry statistics, 20% of all Iranians are living with high blood pressure and since the condition rarely shows clinical symptoms, almost half of them are unaware of having it. The unveiling ceremony of the new drug was held on the periphery of the 18th National Congress on Cardiovascular Updates, September 14.
