Default NBME 13 help - SPOILER, don't look if you haven't taken NBME 13 yet!

Hey guys,

Just want to clarify a concept.

NBME 13 block 3 quest 3 - its a question about aspirin induced asthma. The question asked for excessive production of which of the following would lead to the asthma and I put down Leukotrienes. The answer key said the answer was Prostacyclin (GI2). What's the mechanism ?

Please help!
