DEVELOPMENT OF VINORELBINE AS A TABLET BASED THERAPY TO CURE ECTOPIC PREGNANCIES
Grant number: 1123274 | Funding period: 2017 - 2020
Ectopic pregnancies occur if the pregnancy implants in the Fallopian tube. They can be deadly and most are treated surgically. We will examine the exciting possibility that instead of surgery, ectopic pregnancies may be cured with a tablet taken just once. We will perform laboratory studies and a clinical trial, giving vinorelbine to women with ectopic pregnancies.
