EAT-SET saves 84 lives

The EATSET clinical trials just concluded in Nigeria have saved 84 (eighty-four) women whose lives were threatened following massive intra-peritoneal bleeding from acute rupture of the fallopian tube as a result of ectopic pregnancies. The studies were a follow up of the successful Alpha trials which took place at the Department of Experimental Medicine of the University of Geneva in 1996.

The trials were carried out at the Lagos Island Maternity Hospital, the General Hospital (Ayinke House),and at the Military Hospitals in Lagos and Kaduna.

The trials were coordinated and collated/analysed by Dr. Ayemoba of the Department of Haematology of the University of Lagos Teaching Hospital between 1999 and 2001 Dr. Oviemo Ovadje was the principal investigator.

Results of the trials will be discussed at the International Conference for Military Medicine (ICMM) at the Sun City in South Africa in September 2002.
