  3. Background

  4. Scope of the Epidemic in the United States among Women and Children • AIDS in women has risen from 7% early in the epidemic to 24% of adult cases today • 175 new AIDS cases reported in children in 2001 • 141,000 AIDS cases in women reported through June 2001 • 10,000–20,000 estimated children living with HIV infection • 280–370 babies continue to be born each year with HIV infection

  5. Without antiretroviral (ARV) drugs during pregnancy, mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) has ranged from 16%–25% in North America and Europe • 21% transmission rate in the U.S. in 1994 before the standard zidovudine (ZDV) recommendation during pregnancy • With the change in practice, transmission was 11% in 1995 • Today, risk of perinatal transmission can be <2% with • effective antiretroviral therapy (ART) • elective cesarean section (C/S) as appropriate • formula feeding Perinatal HIV Transmission

  6. National Recommendations for HIV Testing of Pregnant Women • CDC (USPHS) recommendations for HIV screening of pregnant women (4-22-03) • Prenatal: Routine HIV screening for all pregnant women using the “opt out” approach • Labor and delivery: Routine rapid testing for women whose HIV status is unknown • Postnatal: Rapid testing for all infants whose mother’s status is unknown • Regulations, laws, and policies about HIV screening of pregnant women vary state to state

  7. Cases documented intrauterine, intrapartum, and postpartum by breastfeeding • In utero 25%–40% of cases • Intrapartum 60%–75% of cases • Addition risk with breastfeeding • 14% risk with established infection • 29%  risk with primary infection • Current evidence suggests most transmission occurs during the intrapartum period Timing of Perinatal HIV Transmission

  8. Women with HIV infection in the United States should not breastfeed • Women considering breastfeeding should know their HIV status Breastfeeding and HIV Infection

  9. Maternal Factors HIV-1 RNA levels Low CD4 lymphocyte count Other infections(hepatitis C, CMV, bacterial vaginosis) Maternal injection drug use Lack of ZDV during pregnancy Obstetrical Factors Length of ruptured membranes/ chorioamnionitis Vaginal delivery Invasive procedures Infant Factors Prematurity Factors Influencing Perinatal Transmission

  10. Perinatal Guidelines • USPHS Task Force Recommendations for the Use of Antiretroviral Drugs in Pregnant HIV-1 Infected Women for Maternal Health and to Reduce Perinatal HIV-1 Transmission in the United States • Developed in 1994 in response to ACTG 076 • Working Group reconvened in December 1999 and meets monthly • Updated recommendations available online at AIDSInfo website (www.aidsinfo.nih.gov)

  11. Perinatal HIV Transmission and Maternal HIV RNA Viral Load (VL) • Correlation between maternal VL and risk of transmission, even in pregnant women treated with ARV agents • Risk of transmission in women with undetectable VL is extremely low, but transmission has occurred at all VL levels • Other factors appear to play a role in transmission • ZDV decreases transmission regardless of VL level • ZDV prophylaxis should be given even to women with very low or undetectable VL levels

  12. A phase III randomized placebo-controlled trial of zidovudine (ZDV) for the prevention of maternal-fetal HIV transmission Treatment regimen • Antepartum100 mg ZDV po 5x day, started at 14-34 weeks gestation • IntrapartumDuring labor, 1-hour initial dose 2 mg/kg IV followed by continuous infusion of 1 mg/kg/hr until delivery • Postpartum/infant regimen2 mg/kg po q 6 hr for 6 weeks, start 8-12 hours after birth ACTG 076

  13. Results of ACTG 076 30 66% reduction in risk for transmission (P = <0.001) Efficacy observed in all subgroups 20 22.6% Transmission Rate (%) 10 7.6% Placebo ZDV Group

  14. Follow-up of Uninfected Infants in ACTG 076: ZDV versus Placebo • No significant difference in growth • No difference in CD4 and CD8 counts between groups • No other safety abnormalities have been identified • No differences in Bayley developmental scores in uninfected infants in ACTG 219 • Follow-up of infants with exposure to nucleoside analogues is ongoing due to the potential for mitochondrial toxicity • In the U.S., no cases of mitochondrial toxicity have been identified

  15. Follow-up of Women in ACTG 076 • Median follow-up 4.2 years • No substantial differences in CD4 count, time to progression to AIDS, or death in women who received ZDV compared to those who received placebo

  16. Reducing Intrapartum HIV Transmission: Studies of Short Course Therapy • Oral ZDV in a non-breastfeeding population (Thailand) from 36 weeks and during labor • Transmission rate: 9.4 % ZDV vs 18.9 % placebo • Petra study–intrapartum/postpartum oral ZDV/3TC in a breastfeeding population (Uganda, S. Africa, Tanzania) • Transmission rate: 6% ZDV/3TC vs 15% placebo • HIVNet 012–intrapartum/postpartum/neonatal nevirapine (NVP) vs short course/neonatal ZDV in a breastfeeding population (Uganda) • Transmission rate: 12% NVP vs 21% ZDV

  17. Reducing HIV Transmission with Suboptimal Regimens • Partial ZDV regimens: (New York cohort) • Transmission rates • 6.1% with prenatal, intrapartum, and infant ZDV • 10% with only intrapartum ZDV • 9.3% if only infant ZDV started within first 48 hours • 26.6% with no ZDV

  18. Preconception Counseling/Care for HIV Infected Women of Childbearing Age • Goal: • Optimal maternal health for pregnancy • Stable, maximally suppressed VL • ACOG advocates preconception counseling for all women of childbearing age as a part of primary care • Effective contraception, if wanted, to reduce unintended pregnancy • Counsel about perinatal transmission risks, prevention strategies, potential effects of HIV treatment on pregnancy and infant • Screen for and treat infectious diseases, STDs

  19. Preconception Care (continued) • Begin or modify ARV therapy • Avoid ARV medications with toxicities to developing fetus • Choose those that reduce the risk of transmission • Evaluate/control for therapy-associated side effects • Evaluate and prophylax for OIs, give immunizations as needed • Optimize maternal nutritional status, start folic acid supplementation • Identify risk factors for adverse maternal or fetal outcome • Screen for maternal psychological and substance abuse disorders

  20. Treating Women with HIV Infection in Pregnancy

  21. Goals of ARV Therapy (ART) • To prolong life and improve quality of life • To suppress HIV to below the limits of detection or as low as possible, for as long as possible • To preserve or restore immune function

  22. When Should an Adult Be Treated?

  23. Care Guidelines for All Pregnant Women with HIV Infection • Provide standard clinical evaluation—HIV disease stage • Evaluate degree of immunodeficiency—CD4+ count, CD4% • Assess risk of disease progression as determined by level of plasma HIV-RNA • Document history of prior or current ARV use • Discuss known or unknown risks/benefits of therapy during pregnancy • Develop strategy for long term evaluation and management of mother and infant

  24. Guidelines for ART in Pregnancy: Concepts • Use optimal ARVs for the woman’s health; consider the potential impact on the fetus/infant • Offer 3-part ZDV regimen for reducing perinatal transmission, alone or in combination with other ARVs • Discuss preventable risk factors for perinatal transmission • Support decision-making by the woman following discussion of known and unknown benefits and risks • Acceptance or refusal of ARV or ZDV should not result in denial of care or punitive action

  25. Safety and Toxicity of ART in Pregnant Women: NRTIs • Clinical trial data in human pregnancy available for zidovudine, lamivudine, didanosine, stavudine • Mitochondrial toxicity possible with all NRTIs • Increased risk of lactic acidosis/hepatic steatosis with stavudine + didanosine* * This combination should be used only if no other alternatives are available.

  36. Recommendations for ARV Prophylaxis to Reduce Perinatal HIV Transmission

  37. Clinical Scenario 1: Women w/o prior ARV therapy • Recommend • 3-part ZDV regimen to reduce perinatal transmission for all pregnant women with HIV infection, regardless of antenatal VL • Combination ART that includes the 3-part ZDV regimen for women who require treatment with VL>1000 copies/mL, regardless of clinical or immunologic status • Consider combination ART (as above) for women with VL<1000 copies/mL • Consider delaying therapy until after 10-12 weeks of gestation

  38. Clinical Scenario 2Women currently on ART • Discuss benefits and potential risks of her regimen during pregnancy • Add or substitute ZDV after the 1st trimester if possible • Recommend intrapartum and neonatal ZDV • Discontinue teratogenic drugs • Consider continuing or stopping current therapy during first trimester • If therapy is stopped, stop and restart all ARV simultaneously • Resistance testing for suboptimal viral suppression

  39. Changing ART During Pregnancy • Poor CD4+ response • Drugs with potential teratogenicity • Poor viral load response • Poor adherence to regimen • Evidence of viral resistance

  40. Follow-up of the Pregnant Woman with HIV Infection • CD4+ and VL to monitor the need for • ART for maternal health • Alteration in therapy • PCP prophylaxis • New onset of symptoms • Side effects or toxicities • Adherence to therapy • Fetal assessment based on gestational age • Long-range planning for continuity of medical care

  41. Clinical Scenario 3 (1) HIV-infected woman in labor w/o prior treatment • Discuss benefits of treatment during labor and for the neonatal period • Four treatment options: • Intrapartum IV ZDV followed by 6 weeks ZDV for the newborn • Oral ZDV/3TC for mother at onset and during labor followed by 1 week oral ZDV/3TC for the newborn

  42. Clinical Scenario 3 (2) HIV-infected woman in labor w/o prior treatment • Four treatment options (continued) 3. Single dose NVP* for mother at onset of labor followed by single dose of NVP for the newborn at 48–72 hrs of age 4. The single dose maternal/fetal NVP* regimen as above combined with intrapartum IV ZDV and 6 week ZDV for the newborn *High rate of NVP resistance mutations in women who receive single dose NVP

  43. Clinical Scenario 3 (3) HIV-infected woman in labor w/o prior treatment • High rate of NVP resistance mutations in women who receive single dose NVP • If single-dose NVP is given to the mother, alone or in combination with ZDV, consider adding maternal ZDV/3TC starting as soon as possible (intrapartum or immediately postpartum) and continuing for 3 to 7 days. This may reduce development of NVP resistance.

  44. Clinical Scenario 4 Infant whose mother did not receive prenatal or intrapartum ZDV • Offer the six-week neonatal ZDV component • Initiate therapy as soon as possible after maternal consent (preferably within 6–12 hours of birth) • Begin diagnostic testing of the infant • Refer to pediatric HIV specialist for long-term care • Maternal assessment in immediate postpartum period (e.g. CD4+, VL) for her ARV treatment needs

  45. Rapid Testing at Delivery toLate-Presenting Women • High risk of perinatal transmission in women without antenatal care and without HIV counseling and testing • Rapid testing during labor can it possible to initiate ARV prophylaxis and to refer the woman for care • ARV prophylaxis should be initiated as soon as possible after a positive rapid HIV test (before confirmatory test results are available)

  46. Cesarean Section to Reduce Perinatal HIV Transmission • Pregnant women should be counseled re: potential benefits and risks of scheduled C/S to reduce perinatal transmission • C/S reduces transmission in women with unknown VL who are not on ART or are receiving only ZDV • May be effective in women with VL>1000 copies/mL; unproven benefit in women on ART

  47. Cesarean Section to Reduce Perinatal HIV Transmission • Unclear whether scheduled C/S offers any benefit to women on ART with VL <1000 copies/mL, given the low transmission rate • Complications of C/S somewhat more frequent than in HIV-uninfected women • Patient’s decision should be respected

  48. Mode of Delivery: Clinical Situation 1 HIV+ woman not on ART, presents after ~36 weeks, VL and CD4+ pending, unlikely to be available before delivery. • Discuss options for therapy • Start ARVs, at minimum the ZDV regimen, consider ART • Counsel about scheduled C/S • If C/S, schedule for 38 weeks; start IV ZDV 3 hours before surgery • Infant should receive 6 weeks ZDV after birth • Discuss options for continuing/starting combination therapy as soon as VL, CD4+ count available

  49. Mode of Delivery: Clinical Situation 2 HIV+ woman, began prenatal care in 3rd trimester, responding to ART, but VL is well over 1000 at 36 weeks gestation. • Continue ARV therapy—it’s working • VL level falling but unlikely to be <1000 before delivery • Scheduled C/S may reduce risk of intrapartum transmission • Schedule C/S for 38 weeks; start IV ZDV 3 hours before surgery; continue other ARVs • Infant should receive 6 weeks ZDV after birth • Stress importance of adherence to therapy after delivery

  50. Mode of Delivery: Clinical Situation 3 HIV+ woman on ART with undetectable VL at 36 weeks gestation • Inform woman that her risk of perinatal transmission is low (approximately 2%), even with vaginal delivery • Few data on whether C/S will lower risk further in women with undetectable VL • Risks of C/S should be balanced against unknown benefit of C/S in this case
