  Purpose

This is a pilot clinical trial to evaluate whether the medical management of early pregnancy failure with mifepristone and misoprostol is an effective and acceptable treatment. Subjects with early pregnancy failure receive mifepristone followed 24 hours later by vaginal misoprostol for medical management. Subjects then return on study day 3 for a repeat ultrasound to assess passage of pregnancy tissue. subjects who still have a gestational sac present at Day 3 receive a second dose of vaginal misoprostol. All subjects have a follow-up at Day 15, by phone for those who passed the pregnancy with the first dose of misoprostol, and in person for those who received a second dose. Questionnaires are administered at the beginning and end of the study to determine acceptability.

Further study details as provided by University of Pittsburgh:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • to determine if medical management with mifepristone and misoprostol for early pregnancy failure is an effective and acceptable treatment [ Time Frame: 1-2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • to evaluate if the treatment of early pregnancy failure with mifepristone and misoprostol is as effective as induced abortion with these medications [ Time Frame: 1-2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • to assess if mifepristone/misoprostol treatment is acceptable to patients with early pregnancy failure [ Time Frame: 1-2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • to assess the predictors/indicators for successful mifpristone/misoprostol treatment in patients with early pregnancy failure [ Time Frame: 1-2 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
