Relevance to NICE guidance programmes
The misoprostol vaginal delivery system was not considered appropriate for a NICE technology appraisal and is not currently planned into any other work programme.
NICE has published relevant guidance on the care of women in labour:
Intrapartum care: care of healthy women and their babies during childbirth (NICE clinical guideline 55). This guideline is currently being updated (publication expected October 2014).
Caesarean section (NICE clinical guideline 132).
