The effects of diets containing 2% and 4% calcium (Ca) on deoxycorticosteron (DOC) salt hypertension were studied in 29 male rats weighting 210-260 g. Rats were categorized into four groups: Group I: control rats (6), group II: DOC hypertensive group (n=8), group III: DOC-low Ca diet (2% CaCl 2 ) (8) and group IV: DOC-high Ca diet (4% CaCl_2 ) (n=7). During the six weeks follow up period, indirect systolic blood pressure (SBP) was highest in group II while it was found to be less increased in group III and IV. Weight increase was lowest in group IV (P
