We are part of the North West Coast Local Research Network and participate in studies to promote medical research and improve care in the future for certain conditions. These studies are large studies involving many patients in many different hospitals. You may be asked if you wish to be part of a research study. This is entirely voluntary and you should not feel under any pressure to take part.

A multi-centre double-blind placebo-controlled randomised trial of a combination of methotrexate and gefitinib versus methotrexate and placebo alone as a treatment for ectopic pregnancy with a mechanistic study.

328 participants (164 participants per group) and 30 randomised patients for the mechanistic study (Edinburgh only).

Primary Objective:

To assess the effectiveness of a combination of methotrexate (MTX) and gefitinib against MTX alone in terms of the need for surgical intervention for ectopic pregnancy.

Trial website:



  • There are two types of threads commonly used for cervical stitches (single strand or woven).
  • It is not yet known which thread is better.
  • This hospital is therefore taking part in a study called C-STITCH, which will tell us which thread is best and will hopefully reduce the number of babies that are born too soon.

The aim of this study is to develop earlier and safer ways of detecting problems in pregnancy.

Research has shown that it may be possible to use a simple blood test taken from the mother early in pregnancy to gather information about the health of the baby and predict certain complications of pregnancy. This will do this by testing the baby’s genes and other substances in the maternal blood.

PAGE involves a more detailed look at the baby's DNA - capable of picking up smaller changes.
