No Increase in Adverse Birth Outcomes With Maternal TDF/FTC in U.S. Study
February 23, 2017
Among pregnant women with HIV in the U.S., use of tenofovir, emtricitabine, lopinavir/ritonavir (TDF/FTC/LPV/r) was not associated with increased risk of adverse infant birth outcomes when compared to zidovudine, lamivudine, LPV/r (AZT/3TC/LPV/r) or TDF, FTC, atazanavir/ritonavir (TDF/FTC/ATV/r).
In the PROMISE trial, infants of women randomized to TDF/FTC/LPV/r had elevated risk of very preterm birth, very low birth weight, and death compared to those randomized to AZT/3TC/LPV/r.
Data from two large prospective U.S. cohort studies (IMPAACT P1025 and PHACS ) were used to compare risk of adverse birth outcomes for infants with in utero exposure to AZT/3TC/LPV/r, TDF/FTC/LPV/r, and TDF/FTC/ATV/r. The results from this comparison were shown at CROI 2017.
Exposure was classified by first regimen used during pregnancy. The investigators evaluated the risk of the following outcomes: preterm (<37 weeks) and very preterm (<34 weeks) birth, low (<2,500 g) and very low (<1,500 g) birth weight, composite adverse and severe adverse outcomes (outcomes above plus foetal loss, infant mortality).
Of 4,646 enrolled infants, 128 (2.8%), 539 (11.6%) and 954 (20.5%) had mothers who received TDF/FTC/LPV/r, TDF/FTC/ATV/r and AZT/3TC/LPV/r respectively. Table 1 shows risk of outcomes by initial ART regimen.
