Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Our purpose was to determine the relationship among plasma oxytocin levels, metabolic clearance rate of oxytocin, and uterine activity in gravid women undergoing labor induction. STUDY DESIGN: Ten women receiving oxytocin for labor induction and agreeing to participate had blood sampled before initiation of oxytocin and at different levels of uterine pressure. Samples were analyzed with 200 μl extracts from 1 ml of plasma with an oxytocin radioimmunoassay. The intraassay coefficient of variation was
