AMA on the Web: The American Medical Assn.'s World Wide Web site on the Internet features the full text of a controversial study on anti-hypertension medication, along with other health and medical resources.

The study, which also appears in the latest issue of the Journal of the American Medical Assn., deals with whether patients taking calcium channel blockers face a higher risk of heart attack than those taking other blood pressure agents.

Weekly updates from the Journal and other association publications are also on the Web site. "Buttons" on the site direct users to searchable archives of journal abstracts and Web sites established by a host of other top journals and research institutions around the world. The address is http://www.ama-assn.org.
