Formatted abstract
To determine the release and absorption of prostaglandin E2 from a viscous gel instilled into the vagina for clinical purposes, serial measurements of prostaglandins E and F in amniotic fluid have been made. The results 0,6298 obtained suggest that the exogenous prostaglandins reach the amniotic fluid four hours after administration and following the onset of uterine stimulation. The findings are in agreement with previous clinical observations and indicate that the technique could be used to make further improvements in the prostaglandin carrier vehicles used in clinical practice.
