Drug Interaction Study of MGL-3196 With Atorvastatin

The purpose of this study is to determine whether MGL-3196 alters the pharmacokinetics of atorvastatin in healthy male subjects and female subjects not of child-bearing potential.

The Role of Oxytocin in Modulating the Effects of Social Feedback on Achieving Personal Goals

To examine potential differential effects of receiving various social feedback on achieving personal goals,and whether oxytocin would modulate these effects.

In-vitro Myometrial Contractility After Oxytocin Pre-exposure in Women With Advanced Maternal Age and Morbid Obesity

Women with advanced maternal age and morbid obesity, have a higher incidence of labor induction/ augmentation and cesarean section (CS), and are at a greater risk for postpartum hemorrhage...

Does the Rapid Intravenous Administration of Oxytocin After Delivery of the Baby Decrease the Bleeding During Cesarean Section in Women at Risk of Bleeding During Cesarean Section?

Oxytocin is normally given either rapidly into the vein (bolus) or put into an intravenous bag and administered more slowly, after delivery of the baby by cesarean section. Both of these ...

Compare Efficacy of Oxytocin Administrations on Postpartum Uterine Contractility

This is a Phase I open-label, parallel-group clinical study in healthy term pregnant females undergoing a ceasarean section. Two administrations of oxytocin will be tested, after which ute...

Malignant degeneration of rectal endometriosis.

Endometriosis is a relatively common disease among women with child-bearing potential, and rare before puberty or following menopause. It consists of the presence of hormone-responsive endometrium out...

Behavioral interventions for improving contraceptive use among women living with HIV.

Contraception services can help meet the family planning goals of women living with HIV as well as prevent mother-to-child transmission. Due to antiretroviral therapy, survival has improved for people...

Multimethod prediction of child abuse risk in an at-risk sample of male intimate partner violence offenders.

The vast majority of research on child abuse potential has concentrated on women demonstrating varying levels of risk of perpetrating physical child abuse. In contrast, the current study considered fa...

Physiological Reduction in Left Ventricular Contractile Function in Healthy Postpartum Women: Potential Overlap with Peripartum Cardiomyopathy.

Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a potentially life-threatening cause of heart failure, commoner in Afro-Caribbean than Caucasian women. Its diagnosis can be challenging due to physiological changes in ca...

Transient receptor potential melastatin-2 and temperature participate in the process of CD38-regulated oxytocin secretion.

In recent studies, oxytocin showed potential for the treatment of mental diseases. CD38 is essential for oxytocin release, and hence plays a critical role in social behavior. CD38 catalyzes β-NAD int...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cell surface proteins that bind oxytocin with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. Oxytocin receptors in the uterus and the mammary glands mediate the hormone's stimulation of contraction and milk ejection. The presence of oxytocin and oxytocin receptors in neurons of the brain probably reflects an additional role as a neurotransmitter.

A child whose needs, abilities, or other characteristics vary so much from the average in mental, physical, or social areas that a greater than usual level of services is needed to facilitate the child's maximum potential development.

A disease characterized by the progressive invasion of SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS into the LYMPHATIC VESSELS, and the BLOOD VESSELS. The majority of the cases occur in the LUNGS of women of child-bearing age, eventually blocking the flow of air, blood, and lymph. The common symptom is shortness of breath (DYSPNEA).

A nonapeptide hormone released from the neurohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, POSTERIOR). It differs from VASOPRESSIN by two amino acids at residues 3 and 8. Oxytocin acts on SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS, such as causing UTERINE CONTRACTIONS and MILK EJECTION.

Carrier proteins for OXYTOCIN and VASOPRESSIN. They are polypeptides of about 10-kDa, synthesized in the HYPOTHALAMUS. Neurophysin I is associated with oxytocin and neurophysin II is associated with vasopressin in their respective precursors and during transportation down the axons to the neurohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, POSTERIOR).
