KEY: p24 = number of cases positive for p24; Toxoplasmosis, syphilis, herpes and CMV = number of cases positive for anti-Toxoplasma gondii, anti-cytomegalovirus, anti-CMV and anti-herpes antibodies; ICAM-1positive/negative = number of cases positive/negative for anti-ICAM-1; VCAM positive/negative = number of cases positive/negative for anti-VCAM; CD4/CD8 mean/median/standard deviation = mean and median CD4+ or CD8+ counts (and standard deviations) in placental villi, p = confidence interval of less than 0.05
