Review of the HIVNET 012 Perinatal HIV Prevention Study

The HIVNET 012 perinatal HIV prevention trial determined that the drug nevirapine could prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV. This report, from the Institute of Medicine, reviews the trial's methods and data interpretation, and assesses the validity of its overall findings.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on April 8, 2005 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
