Activity of prostacyclin-stimulating factor was measured in 6 normal, non-pregnant women, 6 women in early normal pregnancy, 6 in late normal pregnancy, and 6 in late pregnancy complicated by severe pre-eclampsia. The activity was lower in the women in late pregnancy than in those in early pregnancy and the controls but was about normal in those with severe pre-eclampsia. These results may be relevant to the physiology of pregnancy and the pathogenesis of pre-eclampsia.
