LP15823-5   Prostaglandin E1
Prostaglandin E1 acts as a vasodilator and bronchodilator and inhibits gastric secretion. It also inhibits platelet aggregation. Source: Regenstrief Institute

LP15823-5   Prostaglandin E1
Prostaglandins are fatty acids derived from arachidonic acid metabolism. They are closely related to the Thromboxanes and Leukotrienes. Prostaglandin E1 is derived mainly from Prostaglandin H1, and is metabolized to Prostaglandin F1a. Prostaglandin E1 is excreted directly into the urine. Prostaglandin E1 relaxes the circular muscle of the gut in opposition to Prostaglandin F2a, and also relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter. Prostaglandin E1 reduces gastric secretion preventing the formation of ulcers. Prostaglandin E1 is also a potent inhibitor of platelet aggregation. Prostaglandin E1 stimulates accumulation of cyclic AMP and can stimulate thyroid activity in a manner similar to that of TSH. Elevated levels have been found in patients with tuberculosis, lung cancer, Medullary Carcinoma of the Thyroid, Carcinoid Syndrome, neuroblastomas, and the Watery Diarrhea Syndrome. Prostaglandin E1 production and circulating levels are drastically suppressed by aspirin and indomethacin. Source: Inter Science Institute, Inter Science Institute

LP7238-1   Body fld
The LOINC "Body fld" System represents body fluids other than serum, plasma, blood, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid. When a LOINC term with the System "Body fld" is used, the specific specimen source or body fluid type should be reported elsewhere with the result. Where more specific terms for pleural, peritoneal, synovial fluid, etc. exist, we encourage you to use the more specific terms. In contrast to "Body fld", the System "Asp" in LOINC represents the fluid withdrawn during an aspiration procedure from an abnormal collection of fluid, such as from an abscess or cyst. "Asp" is used for abnormal fluid collections that are aspirated, while "Body fld" is used for named body fluids, such as synovial fluid or peritoneal fluid, that are not inherently pathologic.
