This article reports on the outcomes of a trial designed to evaluate a misoprostol-alone regimen to a combined regimen of mifepristone-misoprostol for early abortion. The results found that the combined regimen was significantly more effective than the misoprostol-alone regimen studied for early medical abortion.
