First Posted : February 22, 2006
Last Update Posted : May 31, 2012
- pharmacokinetics of single dose nevirapine
- the effect of single dose carbamazepine on the pk of single dose nevirapine
- resistance against nevirapine before and after.
- follow-up on HIV status newborns
- relation between nevirapine levels in cord blood and plasma
* safety of single dose nevirapine and nevirapine/carbamazepine
Single dose carbamazepine decreases development of resistance to nevirapine in HIV positive pregnant Tanzanian women by decreasing nevirapine half-life.

Active Comparator: Carbamazepine
An oral dose of 400mg Carbamazepine is added to the 200mg oral dose Nevirapine intake prior delivery
Drug: carbamazepine and nevirapine
Carbamazepine 400mg and Nevirapine 200mg are taken just before delivery during labor.
Placebo Comparator: Nevirapine
Standard therapy of 200mg Nevirapine oral prior to delivery
Nevirapine 200mg is taken prior to delivery during labor.
- Cord blood will be taken less than 30 minutes after delivery [ Time Frame: 0 - 30 min after delivery ]
- Blood samples from mother will be taken less than 30 minutes after delivery to measure viral load and CD4 count. [ Time Frame: 0 - 30 min after delivery ]
- Blood samples will be drawn from mother and child at week 1 (day 6-8), week 2 (day 13-15) and week 3 (day 20-22) [ Time Frame: day 6 - 22 after delivery ]
- From all samples plasma nevirapine and if applicable carbamazepine levels will be determined in women and newborns. [ Time Frame: 0 30 min after delivery - week 3 after delivery ]
