Sleeping Sickness Epidemic Spreading in Uganda

hoose the drug again if they needed to, and 83 percent said they would recommend it to other women.

Dr. Zhang noted that, because misoprostol causes uterine contractions, treatment with the drug could bring about abdominal pain and cramping. The researchers treated minor pain caused by the treatment with ibuprofen and treated more intense pain with codeine.

He added that the misoprostol treatment provided an effective alternative for women who preferred to avoid the surgical procedure. Moreover, because it could be performed on an out-patient basis, the misoprostol treatment was less expensive and could provide women more privacy and convenience than vacuum aspiration. Roughly one in four women experience miscarriage, so the availability of a non-surgical treatment may provide an effective alternative for many women, he added.

“Misoprostol is inexpensive and does not need to be refrigerated,?Dr. Zhang said. “It could provide treatment for miscarriage in developing countries where safe surgical treatment may not be readily accessible.?/p>
