The ultimate aim of this registry is to collect precise information concerning the children coming to oncology units working with the French African Oncology Group. This data will help to plan and provide correct pediatric oncology treatment and care for this population. Collecting the data will give much needed information on numbers, stage, treatment and outcome. The register will give data for local and national health authorities in planning pediatric cancer programs.
In this study, we will compare the safety and efficacy of 400 mcg sublingually administered misoprostol alone to standard surgical care for the treatment of incomplete abortion. This study will provide important data on the role of misoprostol in health services offering an array of treatments for incomplete abortion. Women could significantly benefit from a non-invasive treatment option for incomplete abortion. While safe surgical services are becoming more widespread, there is still a serious risk of complications from these procedures. Especially in developing countries, infection, hemorrhage and uterine damage are still too common. Medical treatment of incomplete abortion using misoprostol would be a tremendous step to reducing morbidity and mortality due to abortion complications.
