INTRODUCTION
Prostaglandins (PG),thromboxanes, and leukotrienes belong to the class of prostanoid fatty acid derivatives of arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid is liberated from membrane phospholipids by the action of phospholipases, metabolized into PGG 2 and PGH2 by the cyclooxygenases COX-1 and COX-2, and converted into PGE 2 by prostaglandin E synthetase (PGES) (1 - 3). PGE2 is found in many bodily fluids and is inactivated in the lungsand liver by prostaglandin dehydrogenase and cytochrome P-450 monooxygenases. COX and PGES exist in different isoforms that are constitutively active or inducible by inflammatory stimuli. PGE2 synthesis can be blocked by corticosteroids that inhibit the phospholipases or by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that inhibit the cyclooxygenases (4, 5). PGE 2 is produced by a wide variety oftissues, including bronchiolar, gastrointestinal, vascular, uterine, and bladder smooth muscle, fetal ductus arteriosus, placenta, brain, renal macula densa cells, testicular Leydig cells, mesenchymal stem cells, monocytes, and macrophages (6 - 17). Increased amounts of PGE2 are produced in several pathologic conditions, including inflammation and arthritis, fever, tissue injury, endometriosis,...
