Aspirin and Prednisone Do Not Prevent Miscarriage

A study conducted by the University of Toronto, and published in the July 17th edition of the New England Journal of Medicine, has found that a treatment of aspirin and the hormone prednisone does not effectively reduce women’s chances of miscarriage. The study further found that the combination drug therapy could actually increase the chances of premature birth. The group based its results on a group of 385 women each of whom had previously had two miscarriages and who tested positively for sensitive immune systems.
