These observations while supporting the inhibitory effects of BPA on cultured uterine cells in vitro  further, demonstrate the decreased responsiveness of uterine contractions
to acetylcholine after exposure to BPA.
Effects of experimental drugs on isolated uterine contractions
8 mg/ml) reduced uterine contractions
induced by KCl (60 mM) and oxytocin (10 mU/ml) significantly and in a dose-dependent manner.
The effect of DQSYS on propranolol ([beta]-adrenergic receptor antagonist)-induced uterine contractions
is shown in Fig.
In addition, products of microbial reductive dechlorination of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are more effective than parent PCB mixtures at stimulating uterine contractions
in vitro (Bae et al.
Also, it increases the frequency and amplitude of uterine contraction
At both of these visits the patient had reactive cardiotocographic changes, uterine contractions
were not palpable manually, and urine dipsticks were not indicative of a urinary tract infection.
We also recommended new terminology and nomenclature for the description of uterine contractions
Timely and effective uterine contraction
is a critical component of parturition (22).
Cervical dilatation is one of the most important factors, which determines the duration of labour and is the resultant of all the driving forces of uterine contraction
acting against passive tissue resistance.
The monitoring system also automatically senses when the mother is having a uterine contraction
and holds blood pressure readings until the contraction is over.
Although oxytocin is used to aid uterine contraction
after delivery at Caesarean section, the optimal dose is unclear.
