Abstract: To determine the release and absorption profile of prostaglandin E2 from a new vaginal film formulation containing 850 μg PGE2, serial plasma levels of 13,14-dihydro-15-keto PGE2 were measured by radioimmunoassay in pregnant women between 16 and 18 weeks gestation. A control group, using placebo vaginal film was included in the study. There was a somewhat uniform increase in the plasma levels of the PGE2 metabolite, reaching peak levels between 4 and 6 hours after application of the film. The findings suggest that this drug formulation could be used clinically when slow constant release of the prostaglandin is required over a period of hours such as in pre-induction cervical ripening of term pregnancy.
