Pregnant women spared from painful, daily needles (2014)

Pregnant woman - injectionMillions of pregnant women around the world no longer have to inject a blood thinner into their belly every day, thanks to a clinical trial led by Dr. Marc Rodger. The injections were once thought to prevent pregnancy loss and other complications in women at high risk of developing blood clots. But in 2014, Dr. Rodger’s trial shocked families and the medical community by showing that it didn’t actually work. Now, women around the world are spared from these painful injections, and researchers are pursuing other promising approaches to help these women have healthy pregnancies.
