EP receptor subtype agonists (PGE 2 , butaprost, sulprostone, and PGE 1 -(OH))-stimulated short circuit current (SCC) in human colon endoscopic biopsies from C-patients and N-patients is presented. Numbers in parenthesis are numbers of biopsy specimens and number of patients. Increases in SCC after stimulation with 200 nM PGE2 (C-patients: 8,5), (N-patients: 6,3); 1.5 μM butaprost (C-patients: 12,10), (N-patients: 11,5); 1 μM sulprostone (C-patients: 11,7), (N-patients: 10,6) and 375 nM PGE1-(OH) (C-patients: 7,6), (N-patients: 9,4).
