How it works

Ethacridine lactate brings about termination of pregnancy by the following mechanism:1. Extensive detachment of the membranes with mechanical stripping of the entire sac from the uterine wall, produces biological changes at cellular level and mechanical stimulation of uterus.2. Decidual damage leading to release of hydrolytic enzymes, causing liberation of prostaglandin precursors, resulting in uterine contractility.3. Reflex release of oxytocin from posterior pituitary.4. Increased oxytocin sensitivity of the uterine musculature by its direct action.
