The chief purposes of this report are (a) to focus attention on various metabolic and pathophysiologic parameters relating prostaglandins (PGs) and thromboxanes to the slow but inexorable progression of vascular and blood cell dysfunction in diabetes mellitus and (b) to suggest areas of investigation that may be of fundamental importance for expanded areas of diabetes research. The prime thrust of these investigations would be to correlate these metabolic and pathophysiologic parameters with the vasculopathy of diabetes mellitus.
