Introduction: Prostaglandins (PGs) are inflammatory modulators with important homeostatic and regenerative roles in the liver and their dysregulation can lead to pathological outcomes. Over 20% of pregnant women smoke and smoke constituents that reach the fetal liver can disrupt PG synthesis, contributing to negative outcomes for the offspring. In this study we examined the effect of maternal smoking on PG synthesis pathway in the human fetal liver.
