Abstract

Chemical analogues which enhance one or several biologic properties of important naturally occurring substances are regularly sought. Currently in this regard, there is intense interest in developing such analogues of the neurohypophyseal hormones (NHPH), oxytocin and vasopressin. Several which have recently been synthesized not only offer the possibility of increased insight into structure-activity relationships but also may provide for more precise therapeutic drug actions (17).
