Resumo 1. the antiviral effect of azidothymidine (AZT) can be potentiated by acyclovir (ACV), and this drug association has been used in the management of HIV-infected patients. in the present study we examined the effects of such an association on rat pregnancy.2. AZT (60 mg/kg b.w.) and ACV (60 mg/kg b.w.) were given to groups of pregnant rats once a day from the 1st to the 20th day of gestation.3. Maternal body weight gain was severely affected by ACV; this effect was attenuated in rats treated with AZT + ACV and was virtually absent with AZT alone.4. the abortive action of ACV was markedly diminished in the group treated with the association AZT + ACV.5. the deleterious effects of ACV on rat pregnancy are presumably due to its extraplacental actions, and these are, at least in part, counteracted by concomitant treatment with AZT.
