Creinin's research receives national "Top Ten Clinical Achievement Award" by the Clinical Research Forum
A research study co-authored by UC Davis Health physician, Mitchell Creinin, has received a national “Top Ten Clinical Achievement Award” by the Clinical Research Forum.
Creinin, chief of the UC Davis Division of Family Planning, was one of the co-investigators who enrolled patients in this National Institutes of Health-funded clinical trial prescribing a combination of mifepristone and misoprostol during miscarriage rather than the standard practice of prescribing misoprostol alone. A combination of the drugs mifepristone and misoprostol can help bring closure to women experiencing miscarriage and reduce the need for surgery to complete the miscarriage process, the study found. The paper was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in June 2018.
The Clinical Achievement Awards seek to identify major advances resulting in the nation's investment in research to benefit the health and welfare of its citizens.
The Clinical Research Forum is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing leadership to the national clinical and translational research enterprise and promoting understanding and support for clinical research and its impact on health and healthcare.
All honorees who have received a "Top Ten Clinical Achievement Award" have been invited to attend the forum’s annual awards event at the National Press Club on March 5 in Washington, D.C.
