A new medical treatment is being developed to treat a miscarriage.
The new treatment, called Methylprednisolone, is being researched at the University of Adelaide and is being tested on a small number of women who have miscarried.
Scientists hope the treatment could reduce or even reverse some of the side effects associated with miscarriage.
Dr Richard Eriksson from the University’s Centre for Maternal and Child Health, told New Scientist that a woman who has suffered a miscarriage would normally have the following symptoms:”In the most severe case, there are significant loss of the womb and birth of a child within 48 hours of the miscarriage.
In the other extreme, there is the complete loss of all normal functions and even the ability to walk.””
What we’re trying to do is treat those symptoms in a way that would allow the miscarriage to be treated safely,” Dr Eriksonsays.”
There’s a lot of science to back up this idea that a miscarriage is not a really bad thing to do, that you can recover from it.”
Dr Erikson said that he and his colleagues were hoping to find a treatment that would help the woman with these symptoms and that it could reduce the side effect of miscarriage.
“We think that the idea of trying to reverse some side effects of miscarriage is actually a really good idea, it’s an idea that can actually improve the outcome of a miscarriage, if you have a miscarriage and you have the treatment.”
Methylpredisolone was first developed in the United States in 2006 and it was originally designed to be used to treat women with endometriosis.
The new medicine has recently been approved for use in the UK.
Dr Erickson said the treatment was being tested at the university’s Centre in Australia and the Australian National University.
“It’s a really exciting drug, we think that we have a really promising treatment for this very rare disease,” Dr Elson said.
“The treatment is designed to work on the molecular pathway of the chemical that causes endometrial breakdown and is actually designed to reverse these side effects.”
The research team behind the new treatment is also looking into other possible treatments for miscarriage and is currently recruiting patients.
“Methyl predisolones can be used in combination with other treatments, such as ointments and topical treatments, and that is an area of clinical trial that we’re working on right now,” Dr Paul Rutter, an associate professor at the Medical University of South Australia, told News Corp Australia.
“But there are other possibilities, and we’re hopeful that we can eventually use it in combination.”
Dr Rutter said that it was not clear at this stage whether the new medicine would work in a real-world scenario.
“If we do have a treatment and it works for some patients, we’re not going to know for sure for another five years, and if we do, then we’ll be looking for a new treatment for that patient, so that will give us some information about what’s possible,” he said.
“We’ve seen that when we do the research, the drugs that work are better than the ones that don’t work.”
You can use one of the drugs and you can get rid of the other side effects, but you don’t know whether the other one is going to work for somebody else.
“Dr Elson believes the development of the new drug could help the world.”
Our hope is that by getting the right information out there, we can try and prevent other women from suffering miscarriage,” he says.”
And it would help save lives, so hopefully that’s something that we’ll see happen a lot in the future.
