    Role of Prostaglandins In Transmitting Nerve Signals. Prostaglandins stimulate nerves that sends pain messages to the brain. Other Important Functions of Prostaglandins. In addition to their roles in mediating inflammation, fever, and allergic response, and ensuring gastric integrity and renal function, prostaglandins are involved in a diverse. Prostaglandins and endometriosis. Prostaglandins and pain messengers. Prostaglandins serve a variety of regulatory functions within the body. One of these functions is to assist the transmission of pain signals to the brain so that you are readily alerted that damage or dysfunction has occurred within the body.. When damage occurs to the body, certain prostaglandins are formed from the.

    The aforementioned background allows us to discuss the role of prostaglandins in the reproductive cycle. Although it is clear that prostaglandins play an important role in a number of reproductive processes, our understanding of the precise mechanism of action remains very basic. prostaglandins and management of misoprostol in labor. Nurses often must assess the safety of mother For nurses to understand the role prostaglandins have in the labor process, this arti- cle reviews the normal physiology of labor, current medical research, and the goal of misoprostol (Red Book, ).
