    Abstract

    The use of intravenous infusions of prostaglandin E (E1 or E2) for the induction of labour was studied in 25 patients at or near term. Labour was successfully induced in 23 patients. The pattern of uterine motility produced resembled that of normal labour. No hypertonus was recorded nor were there any undesirable side-effects.
