This study investigated the aetiology of nausea and vomiting in pregnancy ( NVP) in primary care using a new methodology. Eighteen women in early pregn ancy had 2 blood samples taken in one 24-hour time period, one when they we re symptomatic, and another when they were symptom-free. Maternal serum lev els of the candidate agents PGE2, IL-1 beta, and TNF alpha were measured. T he study shows a positive relationship between NVP and maternal serum PGE2 levels in early pregnancy.
