A controlled trial of the effect of low versus high calcium intake on blood pressure was performed in 15 patients with mild essential hypertension (supine blood pressure after a 1-month run-in period: 145.7 +/- 2.6/97.8 +/- 0.9 mmHg, mean +/- s.e.m.). After a 1-week baseline period on a standard calcium intake (900 mg/day, obtained by giving a 500-mg(More)
Polymyositis and interstitial lung diseases, predominantly nonspecific interstitial pneumonia (NSIP), are known to be frequent in antisynthetase syndrome, where anti-aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase antibodies are often identified.
