Who should take Azilva tablets 20 mg from Japan?
Azilsartan was developed in Japan by Takeda Pharmaceutical. Recently it got approved in Europe and USA, but in a different form (azilsartan medoxomil, a prodrug), while in Japan the active metabolite form is licensed. Clinical studies enrolling more than 6000 patients proved that azilsartan provides a very potent and long-lasting hypertension treatment compared to other angiotensin II receptor blockers (H. Takagi, Y. Mizuno et al. “A meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials of azilsartan therapy for blood pressure reduction”. Hypertension Research, 2014:37, 432–437).
