Effect of nafazatrom and indomethacin on pulmonary removal of prostaglandin E1 after endotoxin in rabbits.


1 We compared the effects of endotoxin on pulmonary prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) removal in groups of rabbits pretreated with the cyclo-oxygenase inhibitor, indomethacin, or nafazatrom (Bay g 6575), which has been shown to increase plasma prostacyclin concentrations. 2 In untreated animals, endotoxin transiently decreased pulmonary removal of [3H]-PGE1, caused… (More)
