Entresto tablets have been approved for the treatment of heart failure.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Entresto tablets for the treatment of heart failure. The drug has been shown to reduce the rate of cardiovascular death and hospitalization related to heart failure, according to the agency.

"Heart failure is a leading cause of death and disability in adults," said Dr. Norman Stockbridge, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Division of Cardiovascular and Renal Products in FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.
