Abstract

The purpose of this present study was to explore the therapeutic potential of prostaglandins E1 and E2 on the systemic inflammatory response evoked by endotoxin. Since interleukin-18, a monocyte-derived cytokine, is increased during sepsis, decreasing the production of interleukin-18 is important in treating this condition. Prostaglandin E1 and E 2 inhibited interleukin-18 production in human monocytes treated with lipopolysaccharide and prostanoid IP-, EP2- and EP 4-receptor agonists mimicked the effects of prostaglandins E 1 and E2. Therefore, prostanoid IP, EP2- and EP4-receptors might be involved in the decrease in interleukin-18 production during sepsis.
