In the first 18 months since mifepristone was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use with misoprostol for early medical abortion, approximately 80,000 women have been treated. One-hundred thirty-nine adverse events were reported to Danco Laboratories LLC and subsequently reported to the FDA. Thirteen patients required blood transfusions, 10 patients were treated with antibiotics for infection and 6 had a generalized allergic reaction. Fifty patients had an ongoing pregnancy, with 48 having suction curettage, leaving 2 ongoing pregnancies. Thirty-nine patients had a suction curettage for heavy or prolonged vaginal bleeding.
