Effect of magnesium sulfate, isradipine, and ritodrine on contractions of myometrium: pregnant human and rat
(BLACKWELL MUNKSGAARD, 2002)
Background. Magnesium sulfate, isradipine, and ritodrine are smooth muscle relaxants used for treating preterm labor. The aim of this study is to investigate the action profile of these drugs on the amplitude and frequency ...
Chloride channel blockers 5-nitro-2-(3-phenylpropylamino) benzoic acid and anthracene-9-carboxylic acid inhibit contractions of pregnant rat myometrium in vitro
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE INC, 2001)
OBJECTIVE: We compared in vitro relaxant effect of chloride channel modulators, such as 5-nitro-2-(3-phenylpropylamino) benzoic acid (NPPB) and anthracene-9-carboxylate (9-AC), and beta (2)-adrenergic agonists, such as ...
Effects of nimodipine and isradipine on endothelin-1-induced contraction of pregnant rat myometrium
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 1998)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of nimodipine and isradipine on endothelin-1-induced contractions of isolated pregnant rat myometrium. Endothelin-1 at 10(-10)-10(-8) M dose-dependently increased the ...
Changes in the nitric oxide system of rat myometrium during midgestation and delivery at term
(ACADEMIC PRESS LTD, 1998)
The aims of this study were to investigate whether a nitric oxide (NO) system is present in the pregnant rat myometrium and whether it differentially inhibits myometrial contractility during midgestation and delivery at ...
