In 1953, researchers at the University of Chicago undertook the first and only double-blind, controlled study of the efficacy of DES for prevention of miscarriage.
The study found that the women given a placebo had more live births than the women given DES.
This study found that DES was ineffective to prevent miscarriages. Other reported studies also concluded that DES was of no value in preventing miscarriages.
