To the editor: The letter by Kahan and associates (1), prompts us to report the main findings of a study on the effects of another calcium channel blocking agent, Diltiazem, in Raynaud's disease. A detailed description of these results is in preparation.
Twenty six patients with Raynaud's disease (19 men; seven women; mean age, 36 years; mean follow-up of disease, 7 years; reasonably excluding all cases of secondary Raynaud's phenomenon) were observed for two consecutive periods of 14 days. During the first period no treatment was given (baseline observation). During the second period, patients were randomly allocated to either placebo
