Abstract The plasma concentrations of prostaglandins E and F (PGE, PGF) and 13,14-dihydro-15-keto-PGF (PGFM) have been measured in pre-term neonates with hyaline membrane disease (HMD) and controls. The concentrations of PGF and PGFM were significantly higher in infants having HMD with a disproportionate increase in PGFM levels for the increase in PGF found. The vasoconstrictor nature of PGF may contribute to the morbidity associated with HMD and the possible therapeutic benefit from the use of prostaglandin synthetase inhibitors is discussed.
