Description

“In a previous paper (1) we have reported on the results of 16 months of study of the effects of the oral administration of a norethynodrel-estrogen tablet employed as a contraceptive agent by 265 Puerto Rican housewives in San Juan. We have now analyzed various data obtained in this project over a 30 month period. In addition, we have similar data from three additional projects; two were established in Puerto Rico in a more rural area than San Juan, namely Humacao, under the overall supervision of Dr. Adeline Pendleton; the other was established at Port-au-Prince in Haiti under the supervision of a committee consisting of Drs. F. Laraque, R. Nicolas, and R. Borno. Information on the date of initiation of each project, the numbers of subjects, and the number of steroid medication cycles recorded is listed in Table 1.”
