Myometrial lactate dehydrogenase isoenzymes were investigated in 32 pregnant women and in 21 women during labor. During pregnancy and labor the H-type LDH isoenzymes were found to preponderate in contrast to M-type LDH isoenzymes. Both H-LDH and M-LDH isoenzyme activities showed a tendency to increase in normal pregnancy. In severe pre-eclampsia and in chronic hypertension, the uterine M-LDH level decreased. In normal labor, M-LDH activity declined in both the uterine and the rectus abdominis muscles.
