Prostaglandins and fertility regulation by M. K Toppozada( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of prostaglandins in physiological events and pathological disorders related to human reproduction has been most actively investigated in the past decade. Their clinical use for fertility regulation, extensively evaluated, represents the most common clinical indication for the administration of these remarkable compounds. Thus, it is most appropriate to update the available information related to the use of prostaglandins in the regulation of human fertility to provide a background document for the benefit of clinicians and scientists. Invited experts of international reputation from various parts of the world have contributed, each in his own area of interest, to offer this book, which we hope will fill an existing gap. M.T.M.B.E.S.E.H. ix 1 Potential for prostaglandin use in controlling human reproduction K.T. KIRTON and F.A. KIMBALL BACKGROUND It was observed in 1930 that seminal plasma of a number of species contained very large amounts of substance(s) capable of altering uterine motility. These substances were subsequently demonstrated to be prostaglandins (PGs); this began the early and continued association of this group of compounds with reproduction. The activity was found to be associated with a fraction containing lipid-soluble acids, derived from prostanoic acid. Restrictions imposed by obscure sources and small amounts of material available for testing were initially impediments to their study
Prostaglandins and their inhibitors in clinical obstetrics and gynaecology by Marc Bygdeman( Book )

7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is clear today that several prostaglandins play an important role in the regulation of many of the physiological events of the reproductive organs in the human. Both naturally occurring prostaglandins and their analogues are used routinely in many countries to ripen the cervix and induce labour at term as well as to dilate the cervix and to terminate pregnancy. Prostaglandin biosynthesis inhibitors are widely used in the treatment of primary dysmenorrhoea. The editors have aimed at an accurate, thorough, yet easily under standable review of the status in 1986 of medical knowledge regarding both the physiological importance and the clinical use of prostaglan dins and their inhibitors in obstetrics and gynaecology. I believe this book will be of value for all clinicians concerned with reproductive health. The list of authors guarantees an authoritative and up-to-date review of this active field.

Menstrual regulation by intramuscular injections of 16-phenoxy-tetranor PGE2 methyl sulfonylamide or vacuum aspiration : a randomized multicentre study( )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A multicentre trial was conducted to compare the efficacy and side-effects of an intramuscularly administered PGE2 analogue and vacuum aspiration in women with a delay of up to 21 days in the expected onset of menses. A total of 473 such women were randomly allocated to treatment with either 16-phenoxy-W-17, 18, 19, 20-tetranor PGE2 methyl sulfonylamide (three intramuscular injections of 0.5 mg at 3-h intervals) or vacuum aspiration, and the outcome of therapy assessed 1, 2 and 6-8 weeks later. Retrospective analysis of hCG levels indicated that 419 (88.6 percent) women had been pregnant at the time of treatment. With few exceptions, administration of the PGE2 analogue induced vaginal bleeding in both pregnant and non-pregnant women but the duration and subjectively perceived amount of bleeding were greater than after vacuum aspiration. Both treatments were equally effective. In pregnant women the overall frequency of complete abortion was 91 percent for prostaglandin treatment and 94 percent for vacuum aspirations. If non-pregnant women were included, the respective success rates (i.e. percentages of women not pregnant 2 weeks after treatment) were 92 percent and 95 percent. Gastrointestinal side-effects and lower abdominal pain requiring intramuscular analgesia were more common after prostaglandin therapy than following vacuum aspiration in both pregnant and non-pregnant women
