Variation in myometrial response to intravenous oxytocin administration at different times of the day in the pregnant rhesus monkey.

Abstract

To assess a potential underlying rhythm in the sensitivity of the pregnant primate myometrium to oxytocin we infused five pregnant rhesus monkeys (gestational age, 121-142 days) with oxytocin at three different periods of the 24-h day, in the order night, afternoon, and morning, via the maternal inferior vena cava.
