Leukocyte infiltration was assessed histologically and by measuring myeloperoxidase activity (MPO) distinct from those of the lipoxygenase products. Following an initial significant falL there was a gradual increase in 6-keto-PGFl~ which was maintained for up to 72 h after TNB. The formation of 6-keto-PGFl~ then returned to control levels after one week but subsequently fell below the level of the control 2 and 3 weeks after TNB 46 . Intestinal protection by prostaglandins The well-documented ability of prostaglandins to protect the gastric mucosa from a variety of damaging agents 94 - 96 had led to studies on their protective activity in the intestine.

Products were identified by coelution with authentic standards of 11-HETE, 12-HETE and 15-HETE. In addition, 15-HETE was added to each sample as an internal standard and in some experiments [3H]12-HETE was also added 27 EICOSANOIDS AND THE GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT as a further standard and to estimate procedural losses of radioactive metabolites. 7). 7 HPLC resolution of the products separated as the 11-, 12-, 15-HETE TLC band formed from [14 C]arachidonic acid by homogenates of inflamed colonic mucosa from patients with ulcerative colitis (colitic) or control uninflamed tissue (non-colitic).
