26168929 Oxytocin serum levels with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder were significantly decreased compared with controls.
25451977 Oxytocin activates NF-kappaB-mediated inflammatory pathways in human gestational tissues in normal parturition.
25088178 reviews the role of OT in the control mechanisms of sexual behavior.
24768649 findings suggest that experiences of childhood emotional maltreatment may alter salivary oxytocin levels, which in turn are related to more positive perceptions of infant stimuli with positive emotion
24635660 nominal associations were found between autism spectrum disorder scores and single-nucleotide polymorphisms in OXT, ARNT2 and CD38
24412107 Patients with poor outcome after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage have lower AVP and OXT levels in cerebrospinal fluid.
24086383 dysregulation of OXT, AVP and/or testosterone systems exist in mothers of autistic children.
23941164 OXT rs2740210 interacted with early life adversity to predict variation in breastfeeding duration and postpartum depression.
23937196 Data from women undergoing hysterectomy for uterine fibroids suggest that uterine isthmian-cervical myoma pseudocapsules exhibit substantial nerve fibers expressing OXT; uterine fundal myoma pseudocapsules exhibit few nerve fibers expressing OXT.
23856187 Oxytocin plays an important role in modulation of social bonding processes and stress regulation, and may be crucially involved in the promotion of mental health. Review.
