Transplacental effects of 3'-azido-2',3'-dideoxythymidine (AZT): tumorigenicity in mice and genotoxicity in mice and monkeys.
BACKGROUND When given during pregnancy, the drug 3'-azido-2',3'-dideoxythymidine (AZT) substantially reduces maternal-fetal transmission of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1). However, AZTExpand
