Glossary of Terms for Supplement
| Carcinogenic = producing or tending to produce cancer
Clastogenic = causing disruption of or breakages in chromosomes

Genotoxic = damaging to genetic material such as DNA and chromosomes
Mutagenic = inducing or capable of inducing genetic mutation
Teratogenic = interfering with fetal development and resulting in birth defects
Ten protease inhibitors (PIs) are currently approved (amprenavir is no longer available in the United States). Data are available from clinical trials in human pregnancy for atazanavir, lopinavir/ritonavir, nelfinavir, ritonavir, and saquinavir. Data in pregnancy are limited for darunavir, fosamprenavir, and indinavir. Very limited data in pregnancy are available for tipranavir.
For information regarding the PI class of drugs and potential metabolic complications during pregnancy and pregnancy outcome, see Protease Inhibitor Therapy and Hyperglycemia
and Combination Antiretroviral Therapy and Pregnancy Outcome
