Valsartan (Angiotan or Diovan) is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist (more commonly called an ARB, or angiotensin receptor blocker), with particularly high affinity for the type I (AT1) angiotensin receptor. In December 1996, Valsartan was approved by FDA. In the US, UK and Australia, valsartan is marketed by Novartis under the trade name Diovan. In 1998, Valsartan was registered by Novartis in China with "Daiwen" as its brand name. After Valsartan, Novartis developed Valsartan compound preparation. In October 1997, valsartan/hydrochlorothiazide was approved by FDA with "CoDiovan" as its brand name; New developed amlodipine/valsartan (Exforge) was also approved to the market.
There are many enterprises producing APIs and finished products of Valsartan. The market share of finished products is mainly occupied by Novartis, which is above 85% by sales value every year.
