Medical News Summary (summary of medical news story as reported by CNW): A 4-year clinical trial showed that Norvasc (a blood pressure-lowering medicine) had better at lowering blood pressure than Valsartan. Norvasc acts as a calcium channel blocker and Valsartan is an angiotension-receptor blocker. However, there was no discernable difference in cardiac mortality/ morbidity.
