Syphilis in HIV-infected Mothers and Infants: Results from the NICHD/HPTN 040 Study

Syphilis continues to be a common co-infection in HIV-infected women and can facilitate in utero transmission of HIV to infants, especially in low- and middle-income countries where both diseases are common.

Correlates of Syphilis Seroreactivity Among Pregnant Women: The HIVNET 024 Trial in Malawi, Tanzania, and Zambia

Many women without identified risk factors were syphilis-seropositive, and younger HIV-infected women were at highest risk, suggesting universal integrated antenatal HIV and syphilis screening and treatment is essential in sub-Saharan African settings.

Prevention of Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV and Syphilis

The rates, burden, and consequences of mother-to-child transmission of HIV and syphilis; the effectiveness of interventions to decrease transmission; the estimated cost-effectiveness of these interventions; and several successful PMTCT programmatic approaches are reviewed.

Disease Postnatal Zidovudine in Prevention of Vertical HIV-1 Transmission in a Service

A retrospective chart review was conducted on HIV-1-exposed neonates from February 1998 to August 1999 and it was concluded that a transmission rate of 15.4 per cent in symptomatic mothers suggests efficacy of a 4–6 week course of zidovudine (ZDV) in a group of infants exposed to HIV- 1.

Syphilis Among HIV-Infected Mothers and Their Infants in Texas From 1988 to 1994

The congenital syphilis rate among Texas infants born to HIV-infected mothers was almost 50 times that of the general population.

Severe, rapidly progressive human immunodeficiency virus type 1 disease in newborns with coinfections

A distinct group of HIV-1-infected babies may clinically manifest in the neonatal period with perinatal coinfections, subsequent rapidly progressive HIV- 1 and early death.

Major prospective and retrospective antiretroviral treatment studies in HIV-infected pregnant women are summarized and the impact of recent advances in the management of HIV infection in pregnancy is discussed.

In the developed world, antiretroviral therapy (ART) administered to the mother during pregnancy and intrapartum and to the infant in the neonatal period has resulted in a reduction of the overall

Maternal HIV infection and preterm delivery outcomes at an urban district hospital in KwaZulu-Natal 2011

The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between preterm delivery and maternal HIV infections at an urban district hospital in KwaZulu-Natal in 2011 and determine the associations and outcomes of preterm deliveries at a high patient load urbanDistrict hospital.

Risk for perinatal HIV-1 transmission according to maternal immunologic, virologic, and placental factors.

Identifiable subgroups of HIV-1-infected women based on maternal and placental characteristics had between a 7% and 71% risk of perinatal HIV- 1 transmission, and not only the overall rate of transmission but the impact of different risk factors for transmission appear to vary over the course of HIV infection.

Obstetrical factors and the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 from mother to child

The risk of transmission of HIV-1 from mother to infant increases when the fetal membranes rupture more than four hours before delivery, and illicit-drug use during pregnancy and birth weight independently associated with transmission are evaluated.

Rapid increase of both HIV‐1 infection and syphilis among pregnant women in Nairobi, Kenya

Data confirm an association between HIV-1 and syphilis infection, and indicate that both are spreading rapidly among women in Nairobi outside high-risk groups, and increased efforts to control both infections are urgently required.

Postnatal transmission of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 from mother to infant.

A prospective cohort study in Kigali, Rwanda, of 212 mother—infant pairs who were seronegative for HIV-1 at delivery and after a mean follow-up of 16.6 months, 16 of the 212 mothers became seropositive for HIV in their infants, and one infant was excluded from the analysis because of a positive test on the blood sample obtained at birth.

It is suggested that HIV-1 and/or HTLV-I/II infected individuals in STD clinic and emergency rooms are highly likely to have had past infections with HBV or HCV.

Reduction of maternal-infant transmission of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 with zidovudine treatment. Pediatric AIDS Clinical Trials Group Protocol 076 Study Group.

In pregnant women with mildly symptomatic HIV disease and no prior treatment with antiretroviral drugs during the pregnancy, a regimen consisting of zidovudine given ante partum and intra partum to the mother and to the newborn for six weeks reduced the risk of maternal-infant HIV transmission by approximately two thirds.
