Summary The same uterus may react to one semen by contraction; to another by relaxation. The same semen may contract one uterus and relax another. From this we may draw the tentative conclusions that certain types of sterility are sometimes due to the female, sometimes to the male. A study of the history of the patients from whom uterine strips were obtained throws an interesting light on our experiments. The uteri from the patients who give a history of successful pregnancy responded to fresh… Expand

Figures from this paper

THE EFFECT OF PROSTAGLANDIN FROM HUMAN SEMINAL FLUID ON THE MOTILITY OF THE NON-PREGNANT HUMAN UTERUS IN VITRO.
TLDR
Results from menopausal uteri are statistically insignificant but show a decrease in sensitivity with time after the onset of menopause, seen to be 3-5 times more sensitive at ovulation than at other times. Expand
Induction of Labor with Prostaglandins
The earliest reported observations of the biological activity of prostaglandins were those of Kurzrok and Lieb in 1930. They found that the effect of human semen on the motility of isolatedExpand
Prostaglandins in Human Reproduction
  • S. Ratnam, S. Karim
  • Medicine
  • The Australian & New Zealand journal of obstetrics & gynaecology
  • 1978
TLDR
Clinical applications of prostaglandins are based on either mimicking these effects by the use of exogenous prostag landins or in some situations by preventing their synthesis. Expand
THE PERMEABILITY OF THE VAGINAL MUCOSA
  • C. Hartman
  • Medicine
  • Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences
  • 1959
TLDR
Whereas experimental studies on vaginal ab5OrptioJl were lacking 35 years ago, medical literature contained many reports of deaths from vaginal douches, wppositories, or uterine wafers containing highly toxic substances, and the medical profession today entertains a quite diffcrent view of the matter. Expand
Concentration of prostaglandins in seminal fluid of fertile men.
TLDR
Only sperm density was related to PG concentration in fertile men and Polyzoospermia was associated with a low PGE concentration. Expand
Discovery of Prostaglandins
To the Editor.— In the MEDICAL NEWS section (1982;248:2212), a summary on prostaglandin research states that, in the early and mid-1930s, Ulf S. von Euler, MD, reported that human semen and extractsExpand
Clinical obstetric use of arachidonic acid metabolites and potential adverse effects.
  • M. Jacobs
  • Medicine
  • Seminars in perinatology
  • 1986
TLDR
There is ongoing research in defining the role of prostaglandins in the etiology and treatment of preeclampsia, intrauterine growth retardation, the initiation of term and preterm labor, and the control of uterine blood flow. Expand
The synthesis of prostaglandin F by human endometrium in organ culture.
TLDR
Progesterone appears to inhibit PGF synthesis which occurs during in vitro culture of human endometrium; estrogen tended to increase P GF synthesis in this system. Expand
PROSTAGLANDINS AND THEIR BIOLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE IN THE SKIN
  • V. Ziboh
  • Medicine
  • International journal of dermatology
  • 1975
TLDR
Prostaglandins have been found in almost all tissues investigated, suggesting that these compounds have a biochemical role fundamental to many, perhaps all animal cells. Expand
Prostaglandins and Renal Function, or “A Trip Down the Rabbit Hole”
TLDR
To adhere to the major intent of this chapter the biochemistry of the prostaglandins will be discussed only in relationship to distinct physiological events. Expand
