Ca metabolism was compared in two groups of patients with chronic interstitial nephritis: in 21 patients (analgesic abuse nephropathy (AAN) group), nephropathy was due to exposure for 5-50 years (mean 21.1) to phenacetin-containing analgesics, whereas in 21 other patients (controls) it was due to exposure for 1-80 years (mean 21.4; NS) to other causes. Patients were followed for 2.5 +/- 0.6 and 1.6 +/- 0.6 years, respectively (mean +/- SEM; NS). Blood Ca, P, protein, creatinine, alkaline… Expand
