1. A method for the treatment of a condition or disease selected from the group consisting of hypertension and heart failure, comprising administering to a patient in need
thereof a therapeutically effective amount of the combination of: (i) the AT 1-antagonist valsartan or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof; (ii) the NEP inhibitor N-(3-carboxy-1-oxopropyl)-(4S)-(p-phenylphenylmethyl)-4-amino-2R-methylbu- tanoic
acid ethyl ester or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof, or (2R,4S)-5-biphenyl-4-yl-4(3-carboxy-propionyl amino)-2-methyl-pentanoic acid or a pharmaceutically acceptable salt thereof; and wherein said components (i) and (ii) are administered in
one unit dose form or in two separate unit dose forms.
2. The method of claim 1 wherein components (i) and (ii) are administered in one unit dose form.
3. The method of claim 1 wherein components (i) and (ii) are administered separately in two separate unit dose forms.
4. The method of claim 1 wherein the condition or disease is hypertension.
5. The method of claim 1 wherein the condition or disease is heart failure.
6. The method of claim 2, wherein the one unit dosage form is for oral administration.
7. The method of claim 2, wherein the one unit dosage form is a tablet or capsule.
8. The method of claim 7, wherein the tablet is a coated tablet.
9. The method of claim 3, wherein the two separate unit dose forms are for oral administration.
10. The method of claim 3, wherein the two separate unit dose forms are in a kit.
