|Abstract:||Copyright © 2018 American Society for Microbiology. We assessed tenofovir exposure during pregnancy and postpartum in hepatitis B virus (HBV)-infected HIV-uninfected women receiving tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF) to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HBV. Data from 154 women who received TDF within a randomized controlled trial were included. Individual plasma tenofovir exposures (area under the concentration-time curve from 0 to 24 h [AUC0-24]) were estimated using a population pharmacokinetic approach. The estimated geometric mean tenofovir AUC0-24 was 20% (95% confidence interval [95% CI], 19 to 21%) lower during pregnancy than during postpartum; this modest reduction in the absence of HBV transmission suggests that no dose adjustment is needed.|
