[Comment] Oral misoprostol for induction of labour in hypertensive pregnancies

Oral misoprostol is simple to use and is thus an attractive and easy option in low-resource settings where the doctor–patient ratio is suboptimum and close monitoring of intravenous drug dosage is often not possible.1 Results of the PROBAAT-II study2 in women with a wide range of indications for induction of labour at term showed oral misoprostol treatment to be non-inferior to Foley catheterisation. Now, the findings of Shuchita Mundle and colleagues’ INFORM study3 in The Lancet advance the role of oral misoprostol for induction of labour.
