Pharmacokinetics and safety of indinavir in human immunodeficiency virus-infected pregnant women

Academic Article


  • Human immunodeficiency virus-infected women (n = 16) received indinavir (800 mg three times a day) plus zidovudine plus lamivudine from 14 to 28 weeks of gestation to 12 weeks postpartum. Two women and eight infants experienced grade 3 or 4 toxicities that were possibly treatment related. Indinavir area under the plasma concentration-time curve was 68% lower antepartum versus postpartum, suggesting increased intestinal and/or hepatic CYP3A activity during pregnancy.
