The efficiency and safety of Lamicel, a new synthetic cervical ripening agent, were compared with those of intravaginal prostaglandin E2 gel in a group of 80 primigravid women about to undergo induction of labor. Lamicel caused less uterine activity and fetal distress than prostaglandin gel, although the induction-delivery intervals were similar in both groups. More normal deliveries occurred in the Lamicel group than in the prostaglandin group. It is suggested that Lamicel is a useful, efficient preinduction ripening agent that is safer than intravaginal prostaglandin gel.
