Novartis says Rasilez approved in Europe

ZURICH, Aug 27 (Reuters) - Swiss drugmaker Novartis AG NOVN.VX said on Monday its Rasilez high blood pressure treatment had been approved for use in the European Union.

Rasilez, which is known as Tekturna in the United States and was co-developed by Swiss biotech company Speedel SPPN.S, is already approved in the United States and Switzerland.

The EU approval had been expected after Rasilez was recommended by a European panel of experts.
