Abstract

Prostaglandin E produced by tumors has recently been implicated as a mechanism by which tumors may subvert the immune system and grow despite their antigenicity. Arterial and venous determinations of prostaglandin E were performed in eleven patients with gynecologic malignancy. No significant difference was found when arterial and venous levels were compared and there was no difference in venous PGE levels when subjects with cancer were compared to patients with benign gynecologic disease.
