The production rate of four prostanoids (PGE2, PGF2 alpha, 6-keto-PGF1 alpha and TXB2) in human umbilical cords from normal pregnancies (control) and cases with pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) were compared. The cords in the PIH-group produced significantly less 6-keto-PGF1 alpha and more TXB2 than did those in the control-group. Production rates of… CONTINUE READING
