In a recent paper1 were presented the actions on the excised uterus of the guinea-pig of a long list of drugs that have been reputed to possess certain rather indefinite actions on the uterus. Since then there has been an opportunity to investigate the actions of a few of the same drugs on strips of the human uterus in the same manner. The number of experiments in this series is rather limited, but as the results agree qualitatively with those on the guinea-pig uterus and as a large percentage of the strips from the human uterus do not contract at all, the number was thought to be sufficient to warrant conclusions for this work. The experiments were made on strips from four nonpregnant uteri and from one fallopian tube. The uteri were obtained from the surgical services of the Omaha hospitals2 and were used on the same day
