The prostaglandin story was condensed by Dr. Karim into a single book published in 1972. Subsequently the prostaglandin literature has more than doubled and an update, Advances in Prostaglandin Research, requires three volumes. Volume I is a comprehensive review of prostaglandin research in reproduction up to 1975 prepared by ten well-known investigators.
Chapter 1 is an excellent overview of current knowledge and areas of research interest in this field. The chemistry has been kept to the minimum necessary to understand the structural differences in the prostaglandins; a numbered prostaglandin moiety would have been helpful. Chapter 2 critically reviews the physiology
