Immediate vs. Delayed Insertion of Copper T 380A IUD After Termination of Pregnancy Over 12-Weeks Gestation

2014-08-27 03:35:47 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to compare delayed vs. immediate insertion of the Copper T 380 IUD after termination of pregnancy after 12 weeks.


Patients presenting to the Reproductive Choice clinic at Bellevue hospital for second trimester termination will be offered participation in this study. They will be randomized to either delayed or immediate IUD insertion. The subjects will be seen at a 6 month follow-up visit and IUD placement will be verified by physical exam and subjects will fill out a satisfaction questionnaire.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Unstable isotopes of copper that decay or disintegrate emitting radiation. Cu atoms with atomic weights 58-62, 64, and 66-68 are radioactive copper isotopes.

P-type ATPases which transport copper ions across membranes in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. They possess a conserved CYSTEINE-HISTIDINE-SERINE (CPx) amino acid motif within their transmembrane helices that functions in cation translocation and catalytic activation, and an N-terminal copper-binding CxxC motif that regulates enzyme activity. They play essential roles in intracellular copper homeostasis through regulating the uptake, efflux and storage of copper ions, and in cuproprotein biosynthesis.

A multi-copper blood FERROXIDASE involved in iron and copper homeostasis and inflammation.

An inherited disorder of copper metabolism transmitted as an X-linked trait and characterized by the infantile onset of HYPOTHERMIA, feeding difficulties, hypotonia, SEIZURES, bony deformities, pili torti (twisted hair), and severely impaired intellectual development. Defective copper transport across plasma and endoplasmic reticulum membranes results in copper being unavailable for the synthesis of several copper containing enzymes, including PROTEIN-LYSINE 6-OXIDASE; CERULOPLASMIN; and SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE. Pathologic changes include defects in arterial elastin, neuronal loss, and gliosis. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p125)

A sulfate salt of copper. It is a potent emetic and is used as an antidote for poisoning by phosphorus. It also can be used to prevent the growth of algae.
