|Abstract:||The present invention relates to novel 2-decarboxy-2-aminomethyl-4-halo-5,9-epoxy-9-deoxy-PGF.sub.1 compounds, which are intermediates useful for the preparation of corresponding 5,9.alpha.-epoxy-9-deoxy-PGF.sub.1 and 5,9-epoxy-9-deoxy-4,5-didehydro-PGF.sub.1 compounds. These end products are employed for induction of a variety of prostacyclinlike pharmacological effects. Accordingly, these end products are useful pharmacological agents for the same purposes for which prostacyclin is employed.|
