Prostaglandin production by intra-uterine human tissues has been investigated using a method of tissue superfusion. Tissues were obtained at elective Caesarean section and after spontaneous vaginal delivery. It was found that all the tissues studied (amnion, chorion, decidua and placenta) produced more prostaglandin E (PGE) and 13,14-dihydro-15-keto-prostaglandin F (PGFM - the major circulating metabolite of prostaglandin F) than prostaglandin F (PGF). Amnion produced significantly more PGE (but not PGF or PGFM) than any other tissue. Prostaglandin production by each tissue was similar whether it was taken at elective Caesarean section or after spontaneous vaginal delivery.
