Determination of prostaglandin F2 alpha, E2, D2 and 6-keto-F1 alpha in human cerebrospinal fluid.

Abstract

Prostaglandin (PG)F2 alpha, E2, D2 and 6-keto-F1 ALha were determined in human cerebrospinal fluid by a mass spectrometric technique. The samples were obtained from 12 patients with suspected intracranial disease. A 64 fold variation in PG levels was observed. The major PG was 6-keto-F1 alpha (0.12--15 ng/ml). PGF2 alpha and PGE2 were present in lower concentrations PGD2 was below the level of detection (0.05 ng/ml) except in one patient with extremely high total levels of PGs.
