Prostaglandins, Leukotrienes and Other Eicosanoids: From Biogenesis to Clinical Application

Polyunsaturated fatty acids are crucial for human mobile metabolism. As precursors of a really huge and intensely flexible family members of signaling compounds they play a key position in intracellular conversation. Eicosanoids represent probably the most plentiful and favourite subfamilies of those fatty acid derivatives that are shaped essentially alongside oxidative pathways.

The LBP includes automated and semiautomated techniques and preparations by cytocentrifugation. ) are the two LBPs approved by the US Food and Drug Administration. Both methods are relatively expensive procedures [131]. Cells in LBP will appear smaller than in conventional smears since they are fixed in their three-dimensional state. Glandular cells may ‘round up’ into balls making interpretation more problematic. This difficulty is reduced by focusing on different planes at edges of such cell clusters.

The stromal cells have ovoid, small, pyknotic nuclei and may appear as aggregates. Isolated predecidual cells, neutrophils and nuclear debris are present in the background. 36 Cytology of the Normal Endometrium – Cycling and Postmenopausal Fig. 14. Secretory phase. Pap, 40ϫ.
