Clinical data of 34 pregnant women treated for premature labor with orally administered beta-2-stimulating drugs here are examined. The results of conventional oral therapy with ritodrine are related to those obtained with long-acting oral salbutamol. The two agents were equally effective when used to inhibit clinically evident uterine contractions, but, with long-acting oral salbutamol, we had a lower frequence of adverse reactions.
