It has been clearly documented that genetic disruption of EP1 or EP3 receptors blunted the hypertensive response to acute or chronic AngII infusion; the pressor responses to EP1/EP3 agonist sulprostone were abolished in EP1 or EP3 null mice [28-31].
Three categories of interventions can be identified (a) interventions on uterine arteries such as laparoscopic uterine artery ligation, uterine artery embolization, pericervical mechanical tourniquet for uterine arteries and hormonal tourniquets such as vasopressin; (b) uterotonics such as ergometrine, oxytocin, misoprostol and sulprostone and (c) myoma dissection techniques which include the use of laser, electrosurgery and chemical dissectors such as sodium-2-mercaptoethanesulfonate (Mesna) (5-10).

Third, researchers in a British study found that the RU 486/oral misoprostol combination results in a higher incidence of ongoing pregnancies (4% of 121 subjects) than RU 486 followed by other prostaglandins, such as geme-prost or sulprostone (0.2%).
In the 1980s, when the RU486 pill was first approved for use in France and Britain, abortionists initially used the prostaglandins gemeprost or sulprostone. However, when they began to encounter problems with their use,1 they began to switch over to misoprostol, a milder prostaglandin marketed by G.D.
