Abstract

The ability of human lymphatics to generate prostacyclin in important amounts (4.5 ± 2.1 pg/mg/min) is described. The prostacyclin produced, exhibits the same properties as reported for arterial and venous tissue. No age and sex difference could be observed. The role of prostacyclin in physiology of lymphatics, however, is unknown.
