Extracted from text ... 284 Atacand(r) (candesartan cilexetil) an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) is proven to reduce cardiovascular death and hospitalisation in chronic heart failure when given together with conventional therapy. AstraZeneca presented data at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC, Vienna, August 2003) annual meeting demonstrating candesartan cilexetil to reduce both cardiovascular deaths as well as hospital admissions for heart failure across a broad spectrum of patients with chronic heart failure.
