Formatted abstract
Human intra-uterine tissues have been superfused and prostaglandin D2 (PGD2) has been measured in the effluents by a specific radioimmunoassay. The rate of production of PGD2 by placenta was three fold greater than that by amnion, chorion laeve or decidua vera. It is suggested that PGD2 produced by the placenta may play an important part in the regulation of utero-placental hemodynamics in human pregnancy.
