A Pilot Study to Detect HSV During Labor Using PCR
To reduce the risk of neonatal HSV transmission among infants whose mothers received intrapartum acyclovir, early detection of neonatal HSV due to enhanced observation, increased knowledge about HSV infection in pregnancy and about HSV transmission to the neonate. Eligible subjects will received IV acyclovir during labor, and their babies will receive oral acyclovir for the first 10 days of life.
