Ulipristal acetate versus levonorgestrel for emergency contraception: a randomised non-inferiority trial and meta-analysis. [2010.02.13]
BACKGROUND: Emergency contraception can prevent unintended pregnancies, but current methods are only effective if used as soon as possible after sexual intercourse and before ovulation. We compared the efficacy and safety of ulipristal acetate with levonorgestrel for emergency contraception... INTERPRETATION: Ulipristal acetate provides women and health-care providers with an effective alternative for emergency contraception that can be used up to 5 days after unprotected sexual intercourse.

Randomised comparison of the FerX Ella antireflux stent and the ultraflex stent: proton pump inhibitor combination for prevention of post-stent reflux in patients with esophageal carcinoma involving the esophago-gastric junction. [2008.05]
BACKGROUND AND AIM: Metal stents placed across the gastroesophageal junction in patients with malignant dysphagia frequently present with reflux symptoms. We compared an antireflux stent with a standard open stent used in combination with proton pump inhibitor medication... CONCLUSION: The antireflux stent had no demonstrable advantages compared to the combination of standard open stent and proton pump inhibitor medication.

CDB-2914 for Abnormal Uterine Bleeding in Premenopausal Women [Not yet recruiting]
- CDB-2914 is a hormone that blocks progesterone, which is necessary for maintaining
pregnancy. In women with fibroid tumors, CDB-2914 shrank the tumors. In many cases,
menstrual periods stopped during treatment. Because CDB-2914 decreased or stopped menstrual
bleeding in women with fibroids, it may be able to treat abnormal periods in women without
- To see whether CDB-2914 can treat abnormal uterine bleeding in premenopausal women.
- Premenopausal women who have abnormal uterine bleeding that is not caused by fibroids.
- Participants will be screened with a physical exam and medical history. They will also
have blood and urine tests. An ultrasound with fluid of the uterus will test for
fibroids. Uterine cells will be collected for biopsy.
- For the next three menstrual cycles, participants will take either CDB-2914 or a
placebo. Treatment will be studied with blood tests and symptom diaries.
- At the end of the treatment, participants have three options. They can have surgery at
the Clinical Center or have another 3 months of CDB-2914. The third option is to stop
treatment at the Clinical Center.
- Surgery will be either uterine ablation or hysterectomy. Only women older than age 33
may have a hysterectomy. Blood and urine samples will be collected after surgery.
- Both surgery and further treatment participants will have followup exams.
- All participants will have a final followup exam 1 year after stopping treatment.
