Studies on the effects of nitrendipine on oxytocin, angiotensin II and ergometrine-induced contraction of pregnant human myometrium in vitro.


The effects of nitrendipine, a Calcium channel antagonist, on stimulated contractions of 72 tissue strips of pregnant human myometrium was studied. The agonists used were oxytocin, angiotensin II (AII) and ergometrine maleate. The concentration: response curves for the contractile effects on these agonists on the myometrial tissue strips were initially… (More)
