Peripheral plasma levels of immunoreactive 6-oxo-PGF1 alpha, the stable hydrolysis product of prostacyclin, were significantly higher in female patients with tumours of the genital tract than in normal controls. In the groups with malignant tumours, these high levels declined after operation and/or radiotherapy if the tumour responded to treatment. In patients who did not respond to treatment or with tumour recurrence, levels of plasma 6-oxo-PGF1 alpha remained high or even rose further. Benign… CONTINUE READING
