Pregnancy and HIV Disease Progression During the Era of Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy, Jennifer H. Tai, et. al. (2007)
(The following summary is excerpted from the article's abstract):
Before the availability of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), there was no clear effect of pregnancy on human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease progression. This has not been assessed during the HAART-era. The authors conducted an observational cohort study among HIV-infected women from 1997 to 2004. Pregnancy was associated with a lower risk of HIV disease progression in this HAART-era study. This finding could be the result of the healthier immune status of women who become pregnant or could possibly be related to a beneficial interaction between pregnancy and HAART.
