Summary: Trends in the vertical transmission rate of HIV and evolving antiretroviral usage between 1990 and 1998 within the Women and Infants Transmission Study were evaluated. A decline in mother-infant transmission was temporally associated with advances in therapy, especially when regimens including a protease inhibitor were included in the analysis.
