欧洲药品管理局(EMA)正在审查以中国浙江华海药业供应的缬沙坦为原料的药品。

The review was triggered after the company detected an impurity, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), in the valsartan active substance which the company supplies to manufacturers producing some of the valsartan medicines available in the EU.

事情的起因是,公司在缬沙坦原料中检测到一种杂质:N-亚硝基二甲胺(NDMA),这些有问题的原料被供应至制剂厂商生产制剂供货至EU。

NDMA is classified as a probable human carcinogen (a substance that could cause cancer) based on results from laboratory tests. The presence of NDMA was unexpected and is thought to be related to changes in the way the active substance was manufactured.

据实验室测试的结果,NDMA被归类为可能的人类致癌物(一种可能导致癌症的物质)。NDMA的存在是出乎意料的,可能与原料的生产方式的变化有关。

As a precaution, the review will also consider whether other valsartan medicines may be affected.
