A combination of 100 ml of 0.1% Ethacridine lactate solution and two intra-muscular injections of prostaglandin (300 g each of I5-Methyl-PGF 2α)was tried for safe termination of pregnancy. It was found that the success rate (88%) with this combination regimen was better than ethacridine lactate alone but a little inferior to prostaglandins alone. Average abortion interval was also less than with ethacridine lactate. However, the combination did not reduce the gastro-intestinal disturbances associated with prostaglandins.
