Isovector spin-flip Jσπ and nonspin-flip Jτ effective NN interactions are calculated as a function of density for three relativi stic one-boson-exchange potentials at laboratory kinetic energies of 50 to 400 MeV. The ratio (Jστ/Jτ)2 increases dramatically wi th density (above 150 MeV) in agreement with TRIUMF and LAMPF pn data. Large medium modifications to (p,n) spin observables DLL and DLL are also found.
