    In 16 patients suffering from cerebrovascular events, prostaglandin (PG) E2 was measured in their cerebrospinal fluid and correlated with their clinical status and evolution. Prostaglandin E2 ranged from 200-3000 pg (picogram)/ml of cerebrospinal fluid. A positive correlation was found between PG E2 levels and the severity and clinical outcome of the stroke.
