MTN-042/DELIVER – A Phase IIIb open-label study designed to evaluate the safety and acceptability of the monthly dapivirine vaginal ring, which is under regulatory review, and Truvada as daily PrEP in pregnant women. The study, which launched in South Africa in early 2020, will enroll 750 women at different times during pregnancy who will use either the dapivirine ring or Truvada as PrEP until they deliver. Women will be followed for six weeks postpartum, and their babies will be followed for one year. Other trial sites are in Malawi, Uganda and Zimbabwe. The study is the first of the ring in pregnant women and will provide more insight about the safety of Truvada as PrEP during pregnancy, a time when women are at much greater risk of HIV.
