HIV Point-of-Care tests in Babies Study (BABY) - Operational evaluation of HIV Point-of-Care tests for very early infant HIV diagnostics in infants born to HIV infected mothers in Mbeya, Tanzania.
This in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) study in infants born to HIV infected mothers evaluates the reliability and operational feasibility of an HIV Point-of-Care (PoC) test for HIV early infant diagnosis (EID) in a public health setting at obstetric clinics in Mbeya, Tanzania.
Recruitment is planned to take place at 4 obstetric/maternity study sites in and around Mbeya over a time period of 12 months. The HIV PoC test will be validated against the Standard-of-Care diagnostic test, i.e. Dried Blood Spot (DBS) analyses.
The PoC test under investigation is the Xpert HIV-1 Qual produced by Cepheid, Sunnyvale, USA.
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Diagnostic

An assisted reproductive technique that includes the direct handling and manipulation of oocytes and sperm to achieve fertilization in vitro.
The concentration of a compound needed to reduce population growth of organisms, including eukaryotic cells, by 50% in vitro. Though often expressed to denote in vitro antibacterial activity, it is also used as a benchmark for cytotoxicity to eukaryotic cells in culture.
A subfield of acoustics dealing in the radio frequency range higher than acoustic SOUND waves (approximately above 20 kilohertz). Ultrasonic radiation is used therapeutically (DIATHERMY and ULTRASONIC THERAPY) to generate HEAT and to selectively destroy tissues. It is also used in diagnostics, for example, ULTRASONOGRAPHY; ECHOENCEPHALOGRAPHY; and ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY, to visually display echoes received from irradiated tissues.
The transfer of mammalian embryos from an in vivo or in vitro environment to a suitable host to improve pregnancy or gestational outcome in human or animal. In human fertility treatment programs, preimplantation embryos ranging from the 4-cell stage to the blastocyst stage are transferred to the uterine cavity between 3-5 days after FERTILIZATION IN VITRO.
