The authors report the results of the first 2 years of follow-up of a prospective cohort study on the mother-to-child transmission of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) and its determinants which started in November 1988 in Kigali, Rwanda.
The study sample consists of 218 newborns of 215 HIV-1 seropositive women matched to 218 newborns of 216 HIV-1 seronegative women of the same age and parity.
They were followed every 2 weeks during the first 2 years of follow-up.
HIV-1 antibodies were detected by enzyme-linked immunoadsorbent assay and Western blot at 3-month intervals.
