Inhibitory effect of barusiban and atosiban on oxytocin-induced contractions of myometrium from preterm and term pregnant women.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A synthetic oxytocin analogue, barusiban, was shown to potently inhibit oxytocin-induced activity of myometrium from term pregnant women. The responsiveness to vasopressin was not influenced by the compound. OBJECTIVE To test the effect of barusiban and a reference compound, atosiban, on oxytocin-induced activity of myometrium from women at… (More)
