Drug description:

Sacubitril and Valsartan is a fixed dose combination acts as an anti-hypertensive and cardiovascular agent.
It is indicated to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death and hospitalization for heart failure in patients with chronic heart failure and reduced ejection fraction.
It is formulated as film coated tablets for oral route of administration.

Mechanism of action:

Valsartan blocks the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by selectively blocking the binding of angiotensin II to the AT1 receptor in many tissues, such as vascular smooth muscle and the adrenal gland1. Sacubitril inhibits neprilysin, a neutral endopeptidase that would typically cleave natriuretic peptides such as atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), brain natriuretic peptide (BNP), and c-type natriuretic peptide (CNP). ANP and BNP are released under atrial and ventricle stress, which activate downstream receptors leading to vasodilation, natriuresis and diuresis. Under normal conditions, neprilysin breaks down other vasodilating peptides and also vasoconstrictors such as angiotensin I and II, endothelin-1 and peptide amyloid beta-protein. Inhibition of neprilysin therefore leads to reduced breakdown and increased concentration of endogenous natriuretic peptides in addition to increased levels of vasoconstricting hormones such as angiotensin II.

Polpharma’s strategic investment in HPAPI facility
We have launched an investment in a specialized facility
for the R&D and Production of highly active substances
with an OEL value of 10 ng/m3 (OEB 6).

The HP API investment includes separate process
laboratories (PDL), analytical laboratories (ADL)
with the possibility of performing Quality Control
analyses, and a GMP kilo-lab production line with
volume up to 1.5 kg with potential volume increase.
