December 5, 2019

Last year, at the beginning of July, we witnessed the withdrawal from the market the drug with the active substance valsartan manufactured by Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals Co. Ltd.

The only pharmaceutical company in BiH that did not have disputable active substance was ZADA Pharmaceuticals, which confirmed our quality and correctness of the preparation ATENZIO (valsartan) and ATENZIO PLUS (valsartan + hydrochlorothiazide), and their safe use.

In these moments, we again have the opportunity to confirm ZADA’s quality and safety because our preparation RANID (ranitidine), amongst others that have a detected contamination called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which is classified as probable human carcinogen, that is, a substance that could cause cancer, SAFE for use i.e. without the specified disputable contamination.
