Abortion clinical trials at UCSF
2 in progress, 1 open to new patients
open to eligible females ages 15 years and up
This mixed-methods study follows a prospective cohort of patients receiving Mifeprex ® (mifepristone) for medication abortion dispensed by pharmacists after undergoing standard clinical evaluation. Women participating in this study will obtain mifepristone and misoprostol from the pharmacy instead of in the clinic. To assess feasibility, acceptability, and effectiveness of pharmacy dispensing of mifepristone, the study will survey patients, evaluate their clinical outcomes from electronic health records, and survey and interview pharmacists at study sites.

This mixed-methods study follows a prospective cohort of participants receiving Mifeprex® (mifepristone) by a clinician in advance of a potential unintended pregnancy. Women participating in this study will be assessed by a clinician and provided Mifeprex® and misoprostol in a clinical setting. To assess acceptability of this service delivery model among participants, and feasibility of implementing a larger randomized controlled trial, the study will survey participants, evaluate any clinical outcomes recorded during clinical visits, and interview participants about their experiences participating in the study.
