Erratum: Vol. 51, No. RR-18

In the MMWR Recommendations and Reports, "U.S. Public Health Service Task Force Recommendations for Use of Antiretroviral Drugs in Pregnant HIV-1--Infected Women for Maternal Health and Interventions To Reduce Perinatal HIV-1 Transmission in the United States," published on November 22, 2002, on page 16 of the printed copies, an error occurred, erasing parts of three sentences.

The first sentence in paragraph four should read, "For women with suboptimal suppression of HIV-1 RNA (i.e., >1,000 copies/mL) near the time of delivery despite having received prenatal ZDV prophylaxis with or without combination antiretroviral therapy, it is not known if administration of additional antiretroviral drugs during labor and delivery provides added protection against perinatal transmission."

The third and fourth sentences in paragraph six should read, "However, the appropriate dosage and short- and long-term safety of many antiretroviral agents in the neonate has not been established. The half-lives of ZDV, 3TC, and nevirapine are prolonged during the neonatal period because of immature liver metabolism and renal function, requiring specific dosing adjustments when these agents are administered to neonates."
