Help Discover the Effects of Aspirin in Gestation and Reproduction
The University at Buffalo is conducting a research study of low dose aspirin and reproduction, called EAGeR. This study is for women who have had a previous pregnancy loss or miscarriage and want to get pregnant again. The study will try to determine if we can improve these women's chances of getting pregnant again and maintaining a healthy pregnancy. If you are 18-40 years of age, have had a pregnancy loss or miscarriage and want to get pregnant again, you may qualify for this very important study.
This study is funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and has been approved by our Institutional Review Board. It is being conducted at four centers: Buffalo, NY; Scranton, PA; Salt Lake City, UT; and Denver, CO.

Parental Participation in End-of-Life Care in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
We are inviting parents who lost an infant in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) following the withdrawal of life support/treatment to participate in an interview about your infant’s experiences during the dying process. By describing the care your infant experienced in the NICU, along with the observations you made of your infant, we will have more evidence to establish a standard of care for dying infants.
If you have any questions or would like to learn more about
the study, please contact Dr. Deb Steward at 614-292-4978.
