The Effect of Oxytocin on Gastric Emptying

2014-08-27 03:12:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators have seen that oxytocin lowers satiety in healthy subjects. Patients with dyspepsia suffers from decreased accommodation and increased satiety postprandially. The investigators now want to examine whether oxytocin may diminish symptoms in these patients.

Description

Patients will come twice for a slow satiety drinking test. Once they will get saline infusion and once oxytocin 40 mU/min. At the same time they register satiety on a VAS scale.

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 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).

Impaired digestion, especially after eating.

Infection of humans or animals with hookworms of the genus ANCYLOSTOMA. Characteristics include anemia, dyspepsia, eosinophilia, and abdominal swelling.
