This article reports on results of a clinical trial evaluating two routes of misoprostol administration following mifepristone for early medical abortion. For gestations through 56 days since last menstrual period 400mcg of oral misoprostol performed better than a 400mcg sublingual dose when following 200mg mifepristone although not significantly so.
