In the goat we have found in the early nursing period that infundibulin (the active principle of the posterior part of the hypophysis), when injected into the vein of the ear, rapidly and greatly increased the secretion of milk. The nipple had a cannula inserted into it, and a water aspirator produced the suction necessary to empty the udder. The milk before and after the injection was caught in a graduated flask and measured every five minutes. The following experiment will given an idea of… Expand
The Physiological Effect of Pituitary Extract (Posterior Lobe) on the Lactating Mammary Gland
TLDR
The data confirm the work of previous investigators in indicating that probably fat alone of the constituents of milk is influenced by this extract, and a temporary inhibition of milk secretion which varied in intensity with the amount of pituitrin injected was indicated by the yield of milk obtained at the next regular milking.

THE GALACTOKINETIC PROPERTIES OF SYNTHETIC OXYTOCIN ADMINISTERED BY THE INTRANASAL ROUTE
TLDR
There is some evidence to suggest that oxytocin stimulates the secretion either of prolactin or of other anterior pituitary hormones responsible for milk production, and the possibility that it may indirectly influence the actual secretion of milk (galactopoiesis) cannot be completely ruled out.

The let-down reflex in human lactation.
TLDR
The mechanism of the let-down reflex in human lactation has been studied and an increase in the flow of milk similar to and accompanied by the same subjective sensations as those produced by applying the baby to the other breast is discussed. Expand
The effects of oxytocin and milk removal on milk secretion in the goat
1. When goats were milked each hour after being given a dose of synthetic oxytocin within the range thought to be released by the pituitary, there was a progressive rise in milk yield becomingExpand
The Milk-Ejection Reflex and the Actions of Oxytocin, Vasopressin and Synthetic Analogues on the Mammary Gland
TLDR
In discussing the physiology of lactation, the following terminology introduced by Folley and his co-workers will be adopted. Expand
Neuroendocrine control of the milk ejection reflex.
The rate and extent to which milk is ejected from the mammary gland during suckling or milking depend upon the relative functioning of a complex array of facilitatory and inhibitory factors which areExpand
The Effects of Hourly Milking with the Aid of Intravenous Injections of Oxytocin
Abstract Milking hourly with oxytocin brought about increases in the rates of secretion of several milk constituents, particularly during the latter part of the trials. The fat secretion rate wasExpand
SYMPOSIUM: MILK EJECTION Neuroendocrine Control of the Milk Ejection Reflex 1
The rate and extent to which milk is ejected from the mammary gland during suckling or milking depend upon the relative functioning of a complex array of facilitatory and inhibitory factors which areExpand
THE PITOCIN DRIP
TLDR
A careful perusal of the literature on the pitocin drip finds that the most physiological responses in severe primary uterine inertia have actually been obtained by giving an intravenous infusion of normal saline containing either 10 or 20 units of pitcin to the liter. Expand

TLDR
The cloning and sequencing of the rat OXT gene 30 years later, followed by cloning of the single OXT receptor (OXTR), enabled the tremendous contributions of molecular biology, including studies on the regulation of the genes' expression and the creation of OXT and OXTR gene knockouts. Expand
