Tekturna (aliskirin tablets) is manufactured by Novartis, now one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. Tekturna had won FDA approval in 1997 specifically for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure). The drug is formulated to regulate the body’s production of the enzyme renin in order to reduce the amount of water in the blood while simultaneously narrowing blood vessels. The combined drug actions stimulate the kidneys and enhance circulatory system blood flow, thus lowering blood pressure.

Unfortunately, for Novartis, international sales of Tekturna had failed to meet the high expectations of a drug manufacturer that, over the years, has paid hundreds of millions of dollars in fines for the unethical promotion and distribution of its products. As a result and right or wrong, Novartis has been branded as a company that will typically put profits far ahead of drug and patient safety. As a possible reaction to Novartis’ need for greater Tekturna profits, the company had also begun to promote the drug as a safe and effective treatment for type-2 diabetes.

Due to Tekturna’s new recommended use, Novartis had initiated a well-known, drug research failure named the ALTITUDE clinical trial that had involved over 8,000 participants. However, in December, 2011, an independent advisory panel had determined that long-term (18-24 months) use of Tekturna had exposed those patients in the clinical trial to unacceptable and potentially fatal health risks and all further research was immediately halted.

The advisory panel’s findings, as well as subsequent scientific studies have linked Tekturna use with serious to life-threatening drug injuries that include: kidney disease or total kidney failure; heart attacks; strokes; hypokalemia (depleted serum levels of potassium that can cause irregular heartbeat); hypotension (dangerously low blood pressure), and Syncope (fainting, dizziness, vision and speech problems, ringing in the ears and more).
