Two-pill regimens of misoprostol after mifepristone medical abortion through 63 days' gestational age: A randomized controlled trial of sublingual and oral misoprostol

This study compares a dose of 400mcg misoprostol taken sublingually or orally 24 hours after mifepristone administration for medical abortion in pregnancies through 63 days’ gestation. The study was conducted with local colleagues in Chisinau, Moldova. The sublingual route was found to be superior to the oral route (98.7% vs. 94%).
