Chou R, Smits AK, Huffman LH, Korthuis PT. 2005. Screening for human immunodeficiency virus in pregnant women: Evidence synthesis. Rockville, MD: U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 90 pp. (Evidence synthesis; no. 39)

Annotation: This evidence synthesis focuses on screening for unsuspected human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) using HIV antibody tests in pregnant women, including adolescents. Although this report reviews the overall body of evidence on screening for HIV infection in pregnant women, it focuses on more recent data on the efficacy of combination antiretroviral regimens in prevention of mother-to-child transmission, harms associated with receipt of antiretrovirals in pregnancy, and the accuracy and acceptability of rapid testing. The report, which includes an abstract, discusses the study methods and results and offers a discussion. Statistical information is presented in figures and tables throughout the report. The report includes six appendices: (1) search strategies, (2) inclusion and exclusion criteria by key question, (3) quality rating criteria, (4) search and selection of literature, (5) statistical methods used for outcome tables, and (6) reviewers.

Annotation: This evidence synthesis focuses on screening for unsuspected human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) using HIV antibody tests in non-pregnant adolescents ages 13-18 and adults. Although this report reviews the overall body of evidence on screening for HIV infection, it focuses on more recent data on the efficacy of highly active antiretroviral therapy regimens, the accuracy and acceptability of new test methods, long-term risks of antiretroviral therapy regimens, and the optimal timing of therapy in asymptomatic patients. The report, which includes an abstract, discusses the study methods and results and offers a discussion. Statistical information is presented in figures and tables throughout the report. The report includes seven appendices: (1) search strategies, (2) inclusion and exclusion criteria by key question, (3) quality rating criteria, (4) search and selection of literature, (5) statistical methods used for outcome tables, (6) reviewers, and (7) evidence tables.

Hardy LM, ed. and Institute of Medicine, Committee on Prenatal and Newborn Screening for HIV infection. 1991. HIV screening of pregnant women and newborns. Washington, DC: National Academy Press, 146 pp.

Annotation: This report (from a committee on prenatal and newborn screening for HIV infection) explores the salient technical, medical, legal, and ethical aspects of HIV screening proposals for pregnant women and newborns, whether such proposals are appropriate, and discusses the process by which such policies should be developed and maintained. It is designed to offer guidance to state policymakers faced with decisions about instituting publicly sponsored prenatal or newborn HIV screening programs. Following an introduction, Chapter 2 considers the current magnitude of the problem of HIV infection and AIDS among women and children and the distribution of infection. Chapter 3 discusses the distinction between testing and screening, the technical characteristics of screening tests, an algorithm for HIV testing, and the range of screening formats. Chapter 4 reviews the possible goals of neonatal HIV screening and the committee's judgment of whether these objectives are currently achievable. Chapter 5 synthesizes the committee's deliberations on screening pregnant women for HIV and presents the resulting conclusions and recommendations. Chapter 6 explores if such screening is epidemiologically justified. The report concludes with the laying out of the specific components that a prenatal HIV screening program should consists of before being considered. An appendix contains the program of the conference and a summary of the presentations and discussions.
