Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF)Antiretroviral Pregnancy Registry A Multi-Site Protocol

2014-08-27 03:32:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to find out if antiretroviral drugs are safe and well tolerated by HIV-positive pregnant women and their infants in Cote d'Ivoire and Zambia.

Description

Although the use of HAART in pregnancy has significantly reduced rates of vertical transmission of HIV-1, some questions remain regarding the safety of these therapies and their potential impact on the uninfected infant.

The overall goal of the project is to establish a voluntary exposure-registry and perform observational surveillance on HIV - positive pregnant women who are exposed to antiretroviral products during the prenatal period, in order to evaluate the outcome of the pregnancy and safety of the products in HIV-positive pregnant women, and their infants.
