Further study details as provided by Ain Shams University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • reduce blood loss during third and fourth stages of labor. [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    reduce blood loss during third and fourth stages of labor by using misopristol is better than using oxytocin


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • the duration of the third stage of labor ,need for oxytocics ,blood transfusion and any adverse effects of the drugs [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    the duration of the third stage of labor ,needed for oxytocics ,blood transfusion and any adverse effects of the drug will be reduced with mesopristol


Estimated Enrollment: 180
Study Start Date: August 2012
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts
group 1
receive 400 Mg sublingual misoprostol.
group 2
receive 600 Mg sublingual misoprostol.
group 3
receive 5IU of intravenous oxytocin.

Detailed Description:

Sublingual misoprostol is superior to oxytocin in reduction of blood loss during the third and fourth stages of labor as The data from a pharmacokinetics study suggested that the bioavaiblitiy of misoprostol after sub-lingual administration was higher than those after oral or vaginal administration
