Can Cozaar cause cancer?


Question from bellem: I read recently that Cozaar could cause certain cancers including breast cancer by causing blood vessels to feed tumors. Research was done at Northwestern University. Is this research valid? I have stopped using Cozaar.
Answers - Eric Winer, M.D. I'm not aware of studies that suggest a link between Cozaar (chemical name: losartan) and breast cancers.
