A case-control study of risk factors for Haemophilus influenzae type B disease in Navajo children. (1/1003)

To understand the potential risk factors and protective factors for invasive Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) disease, we conducted a case-control study among Navajo children less than two years of age resident on the Navajo Nation. We analyzed household interview data for 60 cases that occurred between August 1988 and February 1991, and for 116 controls matched by age, gender, and geographic location. The Hib vaccine recipients were excluded from the analyses. Conditional logistic regression models were fit to examine many variables relating to social and environmental conditions. Risk factors determined to be important were never breast fed (odds ratio [OR] = 3.55, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.52, 8.26), shared care with more than one child less than two years of age (OR = 2.32, 95% CI = 0.91, 5.96); wood heating (OR = 2.14, 95% CI = 0.91, 5.05); rodents in the home (OR = 8.18, 95% CI = 0.83, 80.7); and any livestock near the home (OR = 2.18, 95% CI = 0.94, 5.04).  (+info)

Altered helper T lymphocyte function associated with chronic hepatitis B virus infection and its role in response to therapeutic vaccination in humans. (2/1003)

Theradigm-hepatitis B virus (HBV) is an experimental lipopeptide vaccine designed to stimulate induction of HBV-specific CTL responses in HLA-A2 individuals. Previous studies had demonstrated high immunogenicity in healthy volunteers, but comparatively weak CTL responses in chronically infected HBV patients. Herein, we examined helper T lymphocyte (HTL) responses in chronically infected patients. Despite normal proliferation and IL-2 secretion, IL-12 and IFN-gamma secretion in vitro in response to the vaccine was reduced compared with healthy volunteers. A similar pattern of cytokine secretion was observed following mitogen stimulation, suggesting a general altered balance of Th1/Th2 responses. Further analysis indicated that HTL recall responses to whole tetanus toxoid protein were reduced in chronically infected subjects, and reduced responsiveness correlated with the outcome of Theradigm-HBV immunization. Finally, experiments in HBV transgenic mice indicated that the nonnatural Pan DR HTL epitope, PADRE, is capable of inducing high levels of IFN-gamma secretion and that its inclusion in a lipopeptide incorporating an immunodominant Ld-restricted CTL epitope resulted in breaking tolerance at the CTL level. Overall, our results demonstrate an alteration in the quality of HTL responses induced in chronically infected HBV patients and suggest that use of a potent HTL epitope may be important to overcome CTL tolerance against specific HBV Ags.  (+info)

Home delivery of heat-stable vaccines in Indonesia: outreach immunization with a prefilled, single-use injection device. (3/1003)

Extending immunization coverage to underserved populations will require innovative immunization strategies. This study evaluated one such strategy: the use of a prefilled, single-use injection device for outreach immunization by village midwives. The device, UniJect, is designed to prevent refilling or reuse. Stored at ambient temperatures for up to 1 month in midwives' homes, vaccine-filled UniJect devices were immediately available for outreach. Between July 1995 and April 1996, 110 midwives on the Indonesia islands of Lombok and Bali visited the homes of newborn infants to deliver hepatitis B vaccine to the infants and tetanus toxoid to their mothers. Observations and interviews showed that the midwives used the device properly and safely to administer approximately 10,000 sterile injections in home settings. There were no problems with excessive heat exposure during the storage or delivery of vaccine. Injection recipients and midwives expressed a strong preference for the UniJect device over a standard syringe. Use of the prefilled device outside the cold chain simplified the logistics and facilitated the speed and efficiency of home visits, while the single-dose format minimized vaccine wastage.  (+info)

Update on diagnosis, management, and prevention of hepatitis B virus infection. (4/1003)

Acute and chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is a leading cause of liver disease worldwide. It is estimated that approximately 350 million people worldwide have chronic HBV infection and that 1 million persons die each year from HBV-related chronic liver disease. In the past decade, significant progress in the understanding of the molecular virology and pathogenesis of HBV infection has been made. In addition, effective treatment modalities have been developed for persons with chronic infection. Worldwide, prevention of HBV transmission has become a high priority. In 1992, the Global Advisory Group to the World Health Organization recommended that all countries integrate hepatitis B vaccine into national immunization programs by 1997. Currently, 80 countries have done so and several others are planning to. Many countries have reported dramatic reductions in the prevalence of chronic HBV infection among children born since the hepatitis B vaccine was introduced into infant immunization schedules. Recent reports from Taiwan indicate a reduction in the incidence of liver cancer among children as a result of widespread hepatitis B vaccination programs.  (+info)

Immunogenicity of hepatitis B vaccine in preterm infants. (5/1003)

AIM: To assess the immunogenicity of hepatitis B vaccine in preterm and term infants, given in a sequence of three doses beginning soon after birth. METHOD: The immunogenicity of hepatitis B vaccine was assessed in 176 preterm infants (< 35 weeks of gestation), immunised soon after birth, and compared with that in 46 term infants. Titres of hepatitis B antibodies were determined one to two months after the third vaccine. The significance of the differences between the term and preterm groups was determined using Student's t test. RESULTS: A similar proportion of infants in both preterm and term groups attained protective titres of hepatitis B antibodies (88.7% vs 93.4%, respectively; p = NS). However, the term infants had a higher geometric mean titre of antibodies after the third vaccine than did the preterm infants (701.2 (745.0) vs 469.1 (486.2) mU/ml, respectively; p < 0.03). CONCLUSION: Hepatitis B vaccine is effective in most preterm infants when given soon after birth. It may be advisable to determine the immune response at 12-24 months of age to booster the non-responders.  (+info)

Intracellular retention of hepatitis B virus surface proteins reduces interleukin-2 augmentation after genetic immunizations. (6/1003)

We have previously shown that hepatitis B virus (HBV) surface antigens (HBsAgs) are highly immunogenic after genetic immunization. Compared to the secreted middle HBV surface proteins (MHBs) or small HBV surface proteins (SHBs), the nonsecreted large HBV surface protein (LHBs), however, induced significantly weaker humoral and cellular immune responses that could not be augmented by genetic coimmunizations with cytokine expression plasmids. In order to understand the mechanisms underlying this phenomenon, we examined the effect of coimmunizations with an interleukin-2 (IL-2) DNA expression plasmid on the immunogenicity at the B- and T-cell level of nonsecreted wild-type LHBs, a secreted mutant LHBs, wild-type SHBs, and a nonsecreted mutant SHBs. Coimmunizations of mice with plasmids encoding wild-type SHBs or the secreted mutant LHBs and IL-2 increased anti-HBs responses, helper T-cell proliferative activity and cytotoxic T-lymphocyte killing. By contrast, coimmunizations of plasmids encoding wild-type LHBs or nonsecreted mutant SHBs and IL-2 had no significant effects on immune responses. Interestingly, mice immunized with cytokine expression plasmids 14 days after the injection of the wild-type LHBs plasmid showed augmented immune responses compared to animals simultaneously injected with both expression constructs. Anti-HBs responses in mice injected with plasmids encoding secreted forms of HBsAgs were detectable about 10 days earlier than those in mice immunized with plasmids encoding nonsecreted forms of HBsAgs. Based on these observations, we conclude that cytokines produced by DNA plasmids at the initial site of antigen presentation cannot augment LHBs specific immune responses because LHBs is not produced at high enough levels or is not accessible for uptake by antigen-presenting cells.  (+info)

A mathematical model predicting anti-hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBs) decay after vaccination against hepatitis B. (7/1003)

The determination of serum levels of antibodies against hepatitis B virus surface antigen (anti-HBs) after hepatitis B vaccination is currently the only simple test available to predict the decay of protection and to plan the administration of booster doses. A total of 3085 vaccine recipients of plasma-derived and recombinant vaccine have been followed for 10 years to determine the kinetics of anti-HBs production and to construct a mathematical model which could efficiently predict the anti-HBs level decline. The anti-HBs peak level was reached 68 days after the last dose of recombinant vaccine and 138 days after the last dose of plasma-derived vaccines. The age of vaccinees negatively influenced the anti-HBs levels and also the time necessary to reach the anti-HBs peak. A bilogarithmic mathematical model (log10 level, log10 time) of anti-HBs decay has been constructed on a sample of recombinant vaccine recipients and subsequently validated on different samples of recombinant or plasma-derived vaccine recipients. Age, gender, type of vaccine (recombinant or plasma-derived), number of vaccine doses (three or four) did not influence the mathematical model of antibody decay. The program can be downloaded at the site: http:@www2.stat.unibo.it/palareti/vaccine.htm . Introducing an anti-HBs determination obtained after the peak, the program calculates a prediction of individual anti-HBs decline and allows planning of an efficient booster policy.  (+info)

Hepatitis B vaccination in high-risk infants: 10-year follow-up. (8/1003)

The long-term efficacy of hepatitis B vaccination among high-risk infants was determined in 805 vaccine responders, immunized at birth in Taiwan during 1981-1984 and followed to age 10 years, via life table survival and Cox multivariate analyses. At 10 years, cumulative persistence of antibody to hepatitis B surface antigen (anti-HBs) was 85%, and cumulative incidence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection was 15%. Three children became carriers. Twelve-month anti-HBs titer was the strongest predictor of efficacy. The higher the initial titer, the lower the risk of anti-HBs loss (relative risk [RR], 0.26 for titer of 100-999 mIU/mL; RR, 0.08 for titer >1000 mIU/mL; P<.001) and HBV infection (RR, 0.55 and 0.27; P<.05). Maternal hepatitis B e antigen positivity but not hepatitis B immunoglobulin dose or gender predicted greater antibody persistence to age 10 years. Because the level of antibody persistence remained high and few became carriers, booster revaccination within 10 years seems unnecessary.  (+info)

For the purpose of study, global hepatitis B vaccines market is ...
Although hepatitis B vaccinations have been integrated in the Universal Immunization Program (UIP) in India over a decade, only half of the children are immunized against hepatitis B. The national average in hepatitis B vaccination conceals large variations across states, districts and socio-economic groups. In this context, the aim of this paper is to examine the spatial heterogeneity and contextual determinants of hepatitis B vaccination across the districts of India. Using data of 199,899 children aged 12-59 months from the National Family Health Survey-4 (NFHS-4), 2015-16 we have examined the district level spatial distribution and clustering of hepatitis B vaccination with the help of Morans I and Local Indicator of Spatial Autocorrelation (LISA) measures. We investigated the low coverage of HBV vaccination using spatial autoregressive models (SAR) at the meso scale. And we applied multivariate binary logistic regression analysis to understand the micro-level predictors of hepatitis B vaccination.

Vaccination Report: Why hepatitis B vaccine for all children?. Nineteen states have passed laws requiring three doses of hepatitis B vaccine for all healthy children. Most 12-hour-old newborns cant leave the newborn nurseries of hospitals without being injected with hepatitis B virus vaccine.. Why?. Not content with using the hepatitis B vaccine in high risk populations such as IV drug users, prostitutes, prisoners and sexually promiscuous adults for which this vaccine was created, drug companies and officials at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have targeted vulnerable newborns in the first moments of life to find a larger and more reliable market for their produce.. Using the justification that babies born to mothers infected with hepatitis B disease have an 85-95% risk of developing chronic hepatitis B infection and promoting the idea that injecting all healthy babies with hepatitis B vaccine will protect them when they are teenagers and become sexually active, CDC officials have ...
Dr. J. Barthelow Classen, MD presents compelling evidence linking hepatitis B vaccine and other vaccines commonly used in childhood to the rise in type 1 insulin dependent diabetes. Following is a brief discussion. To access the full article and others, please visit Dr. Classens website.. Discussion. Published data links the hepatitis B vaccine to an epidemic of IDDM (Classen, DC & Classen, 1997). The incidence of type I diabetes in the 0-19 year old age group has been studied since 1982 in Christchurch, New Zealand and a rise in type I diabetes was noted to occur in 1989 (Classen,JB, 1996b) after the initiation of an hepatitis B immunization program. The government of New Zealand introduced a massive Hepatitis B vaccination program in 1988 which was extended to include all children under 16 and over 70% of children were vaccinated within a few years with almost all of the immunization starting after 6 week of life. The initial vaccine was a human blood derived product but was switched to a ...
A second area of concern is the VAERS reports involving Hepatitis B vaccine administered with other vaccines (vaccine cocktails). Health officials are fond of dismissing those reports as being attributable to Hepatitis B vaccine, because of the multiple other antigens present (almost as if they wanted to cloak Hepatitis B vaccine reactions from scrutiny). Lets avoid that controversy and focus on the extremely disturbing VAERS data of Hepatitis B vaccine with other vaccines. These reports amount to only one third of total reports (7,275), but account for two thirds of total deaths (291). The median onset of those deaths was 2 days after vaccination -- displaying a clear temporal association. The median age of death was 0.5 years in this group. 50% of all Hepatitis-B-vaccine-cocktail reports were serious (died, emergency room, hospitalized, disabled). I grouped convulsive reactions together from the Hep-B-vaccine-cocktail data and found a deeply disturbing pattern. These were anything labeled ...
PURPOSE: Hepatitis B vaccine has become an effective means of preventing complications of hepatitis B. However, it occasionally induces serious side effects. We report a case of multiple evanescent white dot syndrome (MEWDS) that occurred following hepatitis B vaccination. METHODS: A 23-year-old woman with a one-week history of progressive loss of vision in the left eye and bilateral photopsia was referred for examination. Her symptoms appeared 24 hours after a booster intramuscular injection of hepatitis B vaccine. RESULTS: Clinical examination, fluorescein angiography, and the course of events were typical of MEWDS. CONCLUSIONS: This case demonstrates the occasional occurrence of MEWDS after hepatitis B vaccine and suggests that hepatitis B virus immunization may be a risk factor for this retinal condition.

The hepatitis B vaccine protects against infection with the hepatitis B virus. A hepatitis B infection can damage the liver and lead to liver cancer.. The vaccine is given to adults in three or four doses. You receive the shots in your upper arm. After you get all the doses, you will be protected for at least 15 years. This vaccine is safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.. If you are exposed to hepatitis B before you get all the shots, you may need a hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIG) shot. This gives you instant protection. The HBIG shot will prevent infection until your hepatitis B vaccine takes effect.. The vaccine may cause pain at the injection site. It can also cause a mild fever for a short time. You should not get the hepatitis B vaccine if you are allergic to bakers yeast. This is the kind of yeast used to make bread. And you should not get the next dose if you had a bad reaction to the first shot.. Ask your doctor about when you need the next shot.. ...
Introduction: Vaccination with the major surface antigen of hepatitis B virus (HBsAg) induces anti-HBs antibody production and level of 10 IU/L is considered protective. It has been shown that the level of anti-HBs antibody does wane after vaccination. The aim of this study was to evaluate the persistence of anti-HBs antibodies ...
The findings of this research suggest that there is indeed a low number (64/331, 19%) of HCWs vaccinated against hepatitis B in Lusaka district. In this study 281 (85.0%) of the HCWs knew that a vaccine against hepatitis B exists and 321 (97.0%) of the HCWs were willing to get vaccinated if the vaccine were to become available in their institution. A high knowledge base on the existence of the vaccine among HCWs and high willingness to be vaccinated suggests that the reason for low vaccination prevalence among HCWs is not by their own doing. Perhaps low vaccination rates can be due to the unavailability of the vaccine in the institution due to a non-stringent policy on the vaccination of HCWs.. Other studies have shown some interesting findings, for example, a study done in Uganda, found the prevalence of hepatitis B vaccination among HCWs at 38.4% [12] and 83.6% in Kuala lumpa [13]. In this study, out of the 64 HCWs that were vaccinated against hepatitis B, 35 (54.7%) had completed full ...

We compared the long-term effectiveness of accelerated (0-1-2 months) and standard (0-1-6 months) hepatitis B vaccination schedules in preventing hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections and anti-hepatitis B (anti-HBs) antibody loss during 2-year follow-up in 707 drug users (HIV and HBV negative at enrollment and completed 3 vaccine doses) from February 2004 to October 2009. Results. Drug users in the accelerated schedule group had significantly lower HBV infection rates, but had a similar rate of anti-HBs antibody loss compared with the standard schedule group over 2 years of follow-up. No chronic HBV infections were observed. Hepatitis C ...
Hepatitis B is a global public health issue, with some 2 billion people having current or past infection. In Africa, 65 million are chronically infected, an estimated 2.5 million of them in South Africa (SA). Hepatitis B and the associated complications of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma are entirely vaccine preventable. SA was one of the first ten countries in Africa to introduce universal hepatitis B vaccination in April 1995, but has no birth dose or catch-up programme. Although universal infant vaccination in SA has been successful in increasing population immunity to hepatitis B, improvements in terms of implementing protocols to screen all pregnant mothers for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) and ensuring full hepatitis B coverage, especially in rural areas, is required. The World Health Organization has recommended a birth dose of hepatitis B vaccine in addition to the existing hepatitis B vaccine schedule in order to further decrease the risk of perinatal transmission. We recommend

Background & objectives: The reported low relapse rates after 24 months multidrug therapy (MDT) for multibacillary leprosy (MB) led to the recommendation of reducing duration of therapy to 12 months. However, only a few reports exist on long term follow up data after 12 months fixed duration therapy (FDT). The present study was done to assess the incidence of relapse in MB leprosy patients after 12 months treatment. Methods: The leprosy patients detected in field surveys during 2001-2006 in Agra district, Uttar Pradesh, India, were put on WHO-MDT and followed up for treatment completion, relapse, reactions and development of disability. The assessment was done clinically by following up the patients until January 2011. Data collected were analyzed for risk and survival analysis. Results: The incidence of relapse was found to be 1.97/100 person years of follow up. The incidence of relapse by age (34 yr vs ,34 yr), sex (male vs female), delay in detection (,36 months vs ,36 months) and smear ...

The hepatitis B vaccine contains a protein (antigen) that stimulates the body to make protective antibodies. Examples of hepatitis B vaccines available in the United States include hepatitis b vaccine-injection (Engerix-B, Recombivax-HB). Three doses (given at 0, 1, and 6 months) are necessary to assure protection. There are also combination vaccines on the market that provide protection against hepatitis B and other diseases.

Thimerosal, a mercury-based compound, is no longer used as a preservative in any of the pediatric hepatitis B vaccines licensed in the United States. On March 28, 2000, SmithKline Beecham Biologicals (Rixensart, Belgium)* received approval from the Food and Drug Administration of a supplement to its hepatitis B license to include the manufacture of single-antigen, preservative-free hepatitis B vaccine (Engerix-B, pediatric/adolescent); distribution of this product has begun. A single-antigen, preservative-free hepatitis B vaccine (Recombivax HB, pediatric) from Merck Vaccine Division (West Point, Pennsylvania) had earlier received similar approval (1). A preservative-free Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib)/hepatitis B combination vaccine (Comvax) from Merck Vaccine Division also is available.

As HIV disease progresses in HIV infected people, their immune responses to infectious and other foreign invaders becomes weaker; in particular, the cellular (T-cell) immune response is particularly affected by HIV. A boosting agent called CpG7909 ODN may be an ideal adjuvant for vaccines given to HIV infected people, because it may help elicit an increased CD8 T-cell response. This study will evaluate the safety of and immune response to a hepatitis B virus vaccine series given with CpG7909 ODN in HIV infected and uninfected people.. There will be three groups in this study; participants will be stratified by baseline CD4 counts and viral load. Within each group, participants will be randomly assigned to receive 3 injections of hepatitis B vaccine with CpG7909 ODN or 3 injections of hepatitis B vaccine alone. Injections will be given at study entry and Months 1 and 6. There will be 10 study visits; a physical exam and blood collection will occur at each visit. ...

In 1978-1981, the CDC conducted a hepatitis B vaccine experiment on homosexual men living in New York City, San Francisco and Los Angeles. HIV/AIDS was first detected among the participants in the CDC hepatitis B vaccine trial and quickly spread throughout the gay community in those cities. A body of evidence, including a detailed statistical analysis of the documented time line of when HIV infection was detected in the mens blood and reported to the CDC. Dissidents who have studied the available published data are convinced that this ill-conceived experiment precipitated the devastating AIDS epidemic in Americas homosexual community. The gay men in the experiment were injected with a vaccine that had been made using human hepatitis B infected blood which was injected into chimpanzees known to be infected with the cancer causing simian virus 40 (SV40); the virus that had contaminated the polio vaccine.. Before these CDC experiments there were no reported cases of HIV or AIDS in America. The ...

The institute was established in 1920-21 as a primary center for researching infectious diseases and producing biological products, vaccines, and serums. A vaccine for pox was the first product of the institute. As a result of major changes that were made following the 1979 revolution, most of the scientific activities and productivity at the institute have been reduced to a minimum level. The Biotechnology Department at the Pasteur institute was formed in 1993 and is one of the pillars of modern genetic engineering in Iran.. In 1993-94, Cuba and Iran signed a biotechnology transfer agreement that brought Cubas recombinant DNA hepatitis B vaccine industrial production equipment to the Pasteur institute. Once the production unit is up and running (five sections, 14,000 square meters), the Pasteur institute will be able to produce 10 million hepatitis B vaccine doses per year. This institute is the only one of its kind in Iran capable of producing new biotechnology products in an industrial ...

A national news story on hepatitis B vaccine is scheduled to be aired on ABCs 20/20 program on Wednesday, January 13, at 10 p.m., EST. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the program is likely to focus on alleged adverse events associated with hepatitis B vaccine.. In a letter dated January 8, Walter A. Orenstein, M.D., M.P.H., Assistant Surgeon General, Director, National Immunization Program, CDC, wrote the following:. From interview questions, we surmise that 20/20s story is likely to focus on alleged adverse events associated with hepatitis B vaccine (e.g., multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome, optic neuritis, Lupus). We also know that the 20/20 reporters contacted states to learn more about laws requiring hepatitis B vaccination.. To assist health professionals in responding to questions generated by the story, CDC released a message from Dr. Orenstein. The message appears on CDCs ...
Universal hepatitis B vaccination was recommended for U.S. newborns in 1991; however, safety findings are mixed. The association between hepatitis B vaccination of male neonates and parental report of autism diagnosis was determined. This cross-sectional study used weighted probability samples obtained from National Health Interview Survey 1997-2002 data sets. Vaccination status was determined from the vaccination record. Logistic regression was used to estimate the odds for autism diagnosis associated with neonatal hepatitis B vaccination among boys age 3-17 years, born before 1999, adjusted for race, maternal education, and two-parent household. Boys vaccinated as neonates had threefold greater odds for autism diagnosis compared to boys never vaccinated or vaccinated after the first month of life. Non-Hispanic white boys were 64% less likely to have autism diagnosis relative to nonwhite boys. Findings suggest that U.S. male neonates vaccinated with the hepatitis B vaccine prior to 1999 (from ...
This study assessed antibody persistence and immune memory to hepatitis B vaccine 20 y after priming using a recombinant hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccine during infancy. the boosted group (84.2% [16/19]; 95%CI: 60.4C96.6) when compared with those in the unboosted group [44.0% (11/25)]; 95% CI: 24.4C65.1). After the HBV vaccine challenge dose at 12 months 20, anti-HBs anamnestic response for subjects in the unboosted and boosted groups was observed in 93.1% (95% CI: 77.2C99.2) and 100% (95% CI: 76.8C100) of subjects, respectively. The mean anti-HBs antibody concentration (GMC) was 562.0 mIU/ml (292.5C1079.7 mIU/ml) post administration of the challenge dose; this is a 28.5 fold increase from your pre- to post-challenge dose administration at year 20. This study demonstrates persistence of anti-HBs antibodies and presence of immune memory following hepatitis B vaccination for up to at least 20 y in Thailand. Olaparib Immune memory was exhibited for virtually all subjects, regardless whether they ...
The AAFP, along with the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, has endorsed a birth-dose initiative from the Immunization Action Coalition that recommends newborns be given the first dose of hepatitis B vaccine before discharge from U.S. hospitals and birth centers. The initiative is summarized in a new guidebook that defines best practices for newborn hepatitis B immunization.
The United Kingdom is one of the few developed countries that have not implemented universal immunization. Instead, it follows a policy of selective immunization of high-risk groups, and screening all women attending antenatal clinics. But this approach has come in for some criticism. So, is the British selective program effective and should the UK now adopt universal immunization against hepatitis B, ask the authors?. Although the UK has one of the lowest incidences of hepatitis B infection worldwide, the Health Protection Agency estimated that only 44 percent of infections are potentially preventable under the current program.. Of particular importance is the average net immigration of about 6,500 people with chronic hepatitis B infection each year between 1996 and 2000, say the authors. This total is cumulative, and therefore the pool is increasing. For example, in Ireland, the incidence of hepatitis B infection increased markedly between 1997 and 2003, in part reflecting migration from ...

Two doses of the investigational hepatitis B vaccine, HEPLISAV, induced significantly earlier and higher rates of seroprotection than Engerix-B, according to study results at IDWeek 2012.
Sexual Health: Hepatitis B vaccines. Vaccines against hepatitis B Vaccinations for hepatitis B were discovered in the 1970s and are now very safe, sophisticated, and effective. Vaccinations are injected into an arm muscle in a 3-step process. After the first injection, the arm shot is repeated 1 month and 6 months later. This vaccine regimen works in most people, providing them with long-term protection and, for some, even life-long protection.
Thimerosal, which is approximately 50% mercury by weight is a preservative widely used in vaccines since the 1930s. It meets the requirements for a preservative as set forth by Pharmacopeia challenge test and has been shown to be effective against a broad spectrum of pathogens. In July 1999, the Public Health Service agencies and vaccine manufacturers agreed that thimerosal should be reduced or eliminated in vaccines as a precautionary measure but, due to the lack of appropriate alternative, it is still extensively used in multiple dose formulations of vaccines such as hepatitis-B in developing countries. In this study the effect of the removal of thimerosal in two formulations of hepatitis B vaccines containing either aluminum hydroxide or aluminum phosphate were evaluated in Balb/c mice. These formulations were administered interperitoneally and the titer of antibody was determined by ELISA technique after 28 days. The geometric mean of antibody titer (GMT), seroconversion and seroprotection

The relations between different vaccination schedules in children with chronic rheumatological diseases and the antibody responses of such patients when receiving immunosuppressive treatment are still not clear.4,6,7,9 To our knowledge, there have been only two studies (of influenza vaccine) in children with chronic rheumatological disease. In both those studies, which had no control groups, the children had an effective antibody response to split vaccination.6,7. Data from some case reports have shown that hepatitis B vaccination may trigger different autoimmune diseases.8,9 This is the reason for the lack of large studies of hepatitis B vaccination in children with chronic rheumatological diseases. The only published study was by Davies and Woo.4 The British Society of Rheumatology recommended that a standard hepatitis B vaccination schedule with a booster dose would give a sufficient antibody response. In our study, we showed that an effective antibody response can be achieved in the great ...
The hepatitis B vaccine may be administered during pregnancy. Hepatitis B virus infection is a risk for short-term and long-term travelers who may be exposed to blood or body fluids. The risk is increased for travel to Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, the Amazon basin and parts of the Middle East. The main risk factors for a pregnant woman include working in a health care setting, being sexually active with a new partner, planning delivery overseas, or planning extended travel.. Ideally, all pregnant women should be screened for hepatitis B carriage. If a woman is positive for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) her infant should be given hepatitis immune globulin and hepatitis B vaccine at birth. The hepatitis B vaccine can be administered to pregnant women. It is preferred that it is given after the first trimester (for theoretical reasons) to all women who are at high risk and test negative by serology for past infection.. Immunization for hepatitis B will also prevent hepatitis D infection.. Was ...
Alaska law provides that hepatitis B vaccine be made reasonably accessible at no charge to all volunteer emergency medical and rescue personnel in the state who provide an emergency medical or rescue service primarily within an unincorporated community or within a municipality that does not provide funding for the emergency medical service. Emergency medical and rescue personnel means a trauma technician, emergency medical technician, rescuer, or mobile intensive care paramedic; and volunteer means that the person is an active volunteer of a first responder service, a rescue service, an ambulance service, or a fire department that provides emergency medical or rescue services as part of its duties. AS 18.15.250. To obtain the vaccine, the head of the service should fill out a Verification of Eligibility form with a roster of personnel who are eligible for the vaccine and fax to (907) 465-4101.. ...
|i|Background|/i|. Chronic hepatitis B (CHB) virus (HBV) infection remains a severe problem worldwide. An estimated 240-400 million persons are reported to have chronic HBV infection, and the annual mortality from HBV-related complications including cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma was 600,000 persons. In Sub-Saharan Africa, the prevalence of HBV chronic infection is particularly high while in South Sudan, hepatitis B remains a serious problem of public health importance with health care workers being more at greater risk. Vaccination coverage against HBV is low among all age groups, yet vaccination status among health care workers is not even known in South Sudan. This study aimed at assessing viral hepatitis B vaccination uptake among health care workers at Juba Teaching Hospital, Juba City, South Sudan. |i|Objective|/i|. To assess the uptake of viral hepatitis B vaccination among health care workers in Juba Teaching Hospital, Juba City, South Sudan. |i|Methods|/i|. An analytical cross-sectional
The team found that only 3 trials reported inclusion of mothers negative for Hepatitis B e antigen.. Compared with placebo or no intervention, vaccination reduced the occurrence of Hepatitis B.. No significant difference in Hepatitis B occurrence was found between recombinant vaccine and plasma derived vaccine.. The researchers observed no difference between high dose versus low dose vaccine.. Compared with placebo or no intervention, Hepatitis B immunoglobulin reduced Hepatitis B occurrence.. The team noted that the combination of plasma derived vaccine and Hepatitis B immunoglobulin also reduced Hepatitis B occurrence.. Compared with vaccine alone, vaccine plus Hepatitis B immunoglobulin reduced Hepatitis B occurrence.. Hepatitis B vaccine and Hepatitis B immunoglobulin seem safe, but few trials reported adverse events.. Dr Gongs team commented, Hepatitis B vaccine, Hepatitis B immunoglobulin, and vaccine plus immunoglobulin prevent Hepatitis B occurrence in newborn infants of mothers ...
Hepatitis B vaccine kills eight babies in China; drug manufacturer says coincidence (NaturalNews) Babies are dying all over China after receiving the hepatiti
Thimerosal, a mercury containing preservative which was widely used but later removed from many pharmaceutical products, lingers on in some vaccines including ones injected into some of the most vulnerable recipients - pregnant women, babies, children and seniors. As of 2011, Canadian vaccines which contain thimerosal as a preservative are multi-dose vials of the influenza vaccines, Fluviral® and Vaxigrip®; Tetanus Toxoid vaccine; Recombivax HB® multi-dose vials of hepatitis B vaccine and Menomune® A/C/Y/W-135 multi-dose vials of meningococcal vaccine. Those which contain trace amounts remaining from the manufacturing process are Infanrix™-hexa (the six-valent vaccine given to babies as young as 6 months and children up to 2yrs old), Engerix®-B multi-dose vials of hepatitis B vaccine and Twinrix® hepatitis A/hepatitis B vaccine.. A 2007 statement on thimerosal by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) informs us that a considerable amount is known about methylmercury, the form of ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Hepatitis B knowledge and practices among Chinese American women in Seattle, Washington. AU - Thompson, Matthew J.. AU - Taylor, Victoria M.. AU - Jackson, J. Carey. AU - Yasui, Yutaka. AU - Kuniyuki, Alan. AU - Tu, Shin-Ping. AU - Hislop, T. Gregory. PY - 2002/12/1. Y1 - 2002/12/1. N2 - Background. Chinese Americans have higher rates of chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection, resulting in higher incidences of liver cancer, compared with the general population. Methods. The authors conducted a community-based survey of HBV knowledge and preventive practices among Chinese American women in Seattle, Washington, during 1999. Results. Less than half (46%) of the respondents knew that HBV could cause liver cancer. Only 35% reported that they had been serologically tested for HBV, and most of those who knew they were susceptible (61%) had not been vaccinated. Conclusions. The findings indicate low levels of HBV knowledge, screening, and vaccination among Chinese immigrants. Targeted ...
Abstract This study examined factors affecting the receipt of both hepatitis B vaccination and screening in the Vietnamese American community of Philadelphia. Hepatitis B is endemic in Southeast Asia; individuals emigrating from endemic areas are at a particularly high risk of hepatitis B infection, resulting in a higher prevalence of liver cancer in the population. Participants recruited at Vietnamese community events in Philadelphia completed a self-administered written questionnaire. In a sample of 207 participants (93% foreign-born), over one half reported that they had not received either a screening or vaccination for hepatitis B in their lifetime. The number one predictor of receiving either service was that the participant was aware of the cancer risk posed by hepatitis B. This association remained strong even when controlling for socio-demographic factors. Based on this finding, future interventions targeting this population should include messages on the cancer risk associated with ...
Background: The risk of CNS inflammatory demyelination associated with hepatitis B (HB) vaccine is debated, with studies reporting conflicting findings.. Methods: We conducted a population-based case-control study where the cases were children with a first episode of acute CNS inflammatory demyelination in France (1994-2003). Each case was matched on age, sex, and geographic location to up to 12 controls, randomly selected from the general population. Information on vaccinations was confirmed by a copy of the vaccination certificate. The odds ratios (ORs) of CNS inflammatory demyelination associated with HB vaccination were estimated using conditional logistic regression.. Results: The rates of HB vaccination in the 3 years before the index date were 24.4% for the 349 cases and 27.3% for their 2,941 matched controls. HB vaccination within this period was not associated with an increase in the rate of CNS inflammatory demyelination (adjusted OR, 0.74; 0.54-1.02), neither ,3 years nor as a ...
Background: Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is one of the most serious occupational hazards faced by healthcare workers. Surgical personnel are particularly at risk. HBV infection is preventable by vaccination, but no previous study has assessed HBV vaccination coverage among healthcare workers in Cameroon. We assessed knowledge of risk factors of HBV infection, awareness of HBV vaccine, and vaccination status of surgical residents in Cameroon. Methods A structured pretested questionnaire was administered to 49 of the 70 surgical residents in Cameroon during the 2011-2012 academic year. Results Since the beginning of their residency program, 28 (57.1%) had had at least one accidental exposure to blood, with a median of 2 (range 1 to 25) exposures. Most of them had a good knowledge of risk factors for HBV infection. Although 98.0% (n = 48) were aware of the HBV vaccine, and 89.8% (n = 44) knew that they were at high risk of infection, only 24.5% (n = 12) had received a full course of at least ...
The standard hepatitis B surface Ag (HBsAg) vaccine fails to induce anti-hepatitis B surface Abs in 5-10% of healthy subjects, a phenomenon known as HBsAg nonresponsiveness, which is closely related to HLA class II alleles and impaired Th cell responses to HBsAg in these subjects. We hypothesized that GM-CSF, a potent adjuvant in enhancing the Ag-presentation activity of APCs, might help to generate Th cell responses in nonresponders, subsequently providing help for B cells to produce anti-hepatitis B surface Abs. We used a thermosensitive biodegradable copolymer (hydrogel) system to codeliver HBsAg and GM-CSF to achieve maximal local cytokine activity at the injection site. In responder mouse strains, hydrogel-formulated HBsAg plus GM-CSF (Gel/HBs+GM) vaccine elicited much greater anti-hepatitis B surface Ab titers and Th cell proliferative responses than a commercial aluminum-formulated HBsAg vaccine or free HBsAg. The adjuvant effect of the Gel/HBs+GM vaccine was dependent upon the local ...
Impaired renal function is associated with a high risk of chronicity of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. Patients on hemodialysis (HD) or peritoneal dialysis are at an increased risk of viral transmission due to frequent necessity of blood product transfer as well as use of contaminated dialysate or dialysis materials. Additionally, health professionals may cause viral spread via contaminated hands and carelessness against hygiene rules. The frequency of chronic HBV infection may be as high as 80% in patients on renal replacement therapies. This is because HBV vaccination is essential to eliminate chronic HBV infection. However, response rates of HD patients to HBV vaccination vary between 10%-50%. Dialysis adequacy and early vaccination before the onset of dialysis therapy seem to be major determinants of high seroconversion rates. Older age, male gender, duration of dialysis therapy and nutritional status are other well-known factors associated with seroconversion rate. There are ...
The Hepatitis Foundation of New Zealand has completed many major screening, vaccination and research programmes in New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Vietnam during the 30-year history.. In 1984, the newly established Hepatitis Foundation of New Zealand, implemented the Kawerau Seroprevalence Study. They tested 93% of Kaweraus population for hepatitis B. The results showed that the hepatitis B virus was highly endemic.. Nine years later, as a result of the Foundations work, New Zealand was the first sovereign nation to introduce universal hepatitis B vaccination for all children.. From 1999 to 2002 the largest national hepatitis B screening programme ever conducted took place in New Zealand. A total of 177,292 New Zealanders were screened with 11,936 people with chronic hepatitis B identified.. The start of the 21st century saw the establishment of the free national long-term follow-up programme at the Foundation. The programme continues today, successfully following up and monitoring over ...
Each year, an estimated 20,000 infants are born to women in the United States who are positive for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg). These infants are at high risk for perinatal hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and for chronic liver disease as adults. To identify newborns who require immunoprophylaxis to prevent perinatal HBV infection (1-4), all vaccine advisory groups have recommended routine HBsAg screening of all pregnant women during an early prenatal visit in each pregnancy. Federal funding to support perinatal hepatitis B-prevention programs became available in 1990, and by 1992, programs had been implemented in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Specific objectives of these programs are to ensure that 1) all pregnant women are tested for HBsAg, and 2) infants born to HBsAg-positive women receive hepatitis B immune globulin (HBIG) and hepatitis B vaccine at birth, with follow-up doses of vaccine at ages 1 and 6 months (5). This report describes the case-management features of ...

Background The RTS,S/AS malaria candidate vaccine has been developed with the intent to be delivered, if approved, through the Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) of the World Health Business. one SAE was reported in 57/170 infants who received RTS,S/AS02D (33.5%; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 26.5, 41.2) and 62/170 infants who received hepatitis B SU6668 vaccine (36.5%; 95% CI: 29.2, 44.2). The SAE profile was comparable in both vaccine groups; none were considered to be related to vaccination. At month SU6668 20, 18?months after completion of vaccination, 71.8% of recipients of RTS,S/AS02D and 3.8% of recipients of hepatitis B vaccine experienced seropositive titres for anti-CS antibodies; seroprotective levels of anti-HBs antibodies remained in 100% of recipients of RTS,S/AS02D and 97.7% recipients of hepatitis B vaccine. Anti-HBs antibody GMTs were higher in the RTS,S/AS02D group at all post-vaccination time points compared to control. According to protocol populace, vaccine efficacy ...
The hepatitis B vaccine is given to U.S. infants at birth. But there is impressive evidence that for a preventive measure, hepatitis B vaccine is remarkable for the frequency, variety, and severity of complications from its use.. Hepatitis B vaccine has been shown in many peer-reviewed research papers to be associated with numerous infant deaths in the U.S. and Europe, multiple sclerosis and numerous chronic autoimmune disorders.. According to Child Health Safety, the U.S. government admitted as much when a Court found in favor of a plaintiff (deceased by the time the decision was made) who had developed systemic lupus erythematosus:. ...
Recommended vaccine schedules for hepatitis B vaccination in the U.S. and internationally. There is a 3-dose and 4-dose recommendation for individuals.
Previous studies estimated that vaccinating high-risk heterosexuals (HRH) with combination hepatitis A/B vaccine was a cost-effective alternative to vaccinating HRH against hepatitis B alone. Since then, the incidence of hepatitis A has declined dramatically in the United States. We re-estimate the cost-effectiveness of this policy accounting for modern declines in incidence.
Infections with Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib) bacteria can cause life-threatening illnesses, such as meningitis (a brain disease), epiglottitis (a throat disease that can cause suffocation), pericarditis (a heart disease), pneumonia (a lung disease), and septic arthritis (a bone and joint disease). Hib meningitis may cause death or leave the child with serious and permanent damage, such as mental retardation, deafness, epilepsy, or partial blindness. HBV infection is a major cause of serious liver diseases, such as hepatitis and cirrhosis, and a type of liver cancer called primary hepatocellular carcinoma. Pregnant women who have hepatitis B infection or are carriers of hepatitis B virus can give the disease to their babies when they are born. These babies often suffer serious long-term illnesses from the disease. Immunization against hepatitis B disease is recommended for all newborn babies, infants, and young children. This vaccine is to be administered only by or under the direct ...

A topic that frequently leads to both questions and claims from concerned parents during rounds in the newborn nursery is the vaccination against the hepatitis B virus (HBV), something that has been recommended universally for infants by the Advisory Council on Immunization Practices (ACIP) since 1991. Their strategy was, and still is, to wipe this awful disease out in the United States. Over the years, the recommendation for timing of the first dose has changed from at birth before hospital discharge or at age 1-2 months to simply newborns before hospital discharge in 2002, with qualifiers of medical stability and weight greater than 2,000 grams added in 2005. Babies that weight less than 2 kg at birth still will get the vaccine at discharge home or at 1 month of age if still in the hospital. This last change was recommended because of concerns over efficacy rather than safety. Its an extremely safe vaccine.. In addition to questions about the vaccine, the most common being about any ...

With an estimated 20.1 million Nigerians living with the disease and the ease of transmission, we all are at risk of hepatitis B infection.. In areas like Nigeria where hepatitis B is highly endemic, the risk of hepatitis b infection is increased by someone having unprotected sex with multiple sexual partners, having sex with known hepatitis B infected persons, cuts with unsterilized sharp blades, needles, and knives used during circumcision and skin piercing, sharing of blades used for hair cutting, men having sex with men (MSM), persons that indulge in oral sex, and somebody receiving blood transfusion from an infected and unscreened source amongst others. Transmission can also occur where there is frequent and prolonged close personal contact with an infected person.. ...

Introduction Hepatitis B is a viral disease that attacks the liver.There are several types of viral hepatitis: A, B, C, D, and E. Hepatitis B virus is very infectious and spreads from person to person through bodily fluids, including blood, semen and vaginal fluids. People who are infected with hepatitis B can develop an acute illness, in which they become sick soon after

Hepatitis B and C are both bloodborne diseases transmitted when blood or body fluids from an infected person enter the body of a susceptible person. Both hepatitis B and C can cause chronic infection that can lead to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The number of new hepatitis B virus (HBV) infections per year has declined from approximately 450,000 during the 1980s to approximately 80,000 in 1998. Hepatitis B vaccine is the best protection against infection with HBV. The greatest decline in HBV infections has occurred among children and adolescents as the result of routine hepatitis B vaccination. The number of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections per year declined from approximately 240,000 during the 1980s to approximately 40,000 in 1998. No vaccine exists to prevent HCV infection. The infection is transmitted most often by injection drug use. Transfusion-associated cases occurred before blood donor screening, but currently HCV infection occurs in less than one per million transfused ...
Even low concentrations of thimerosal induced significant cellular toxicity in human neuronal and fetal cells. Thimerosal was also found to be significantly more toxic than the other metal compounds examined.. Four years ago, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. wrote a must-read Rolling Stone article exposing the truth about the drug industrys greed, and the secret gathering where a plan was hatched to cover up the dangers of thimerosal.. According to Kennedys account, in June of 2000, a group of top government scientists and health officials -- including high-level officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the top vaccine specialists from the World Health Organization (WHO), and representatives from every major vaccine manufacturer -- secretly gathered to discuss the use of thimerosal in childhood vaccines. Data indicated that the toxic heavy metal appeared to be responsible for a drastic increase in autism and other neurological disorders ...
Discuss vaccination with your doctor even if you arent in one of the recommended groups. In the United States, about 15 out of 100 of those who become infected dont know how they got infected.footnote 4. In some cases, a doctor will order post-vaccination testing to make sure you have developed immunity to the virus. People who need this testing include those who have an impaired immune system or those who are health care workers or sex partners of people who have chronic infection.. If you are exposed to the virus before you have received all of the shots in the vaccination series, you may be given a dose of hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIG) soon afterward. In most cases, this will prevent infection until the vaccine takes effect.. If you have had sex with someone who has hepatitis B and you havent received all doses of the hepatitis B vaccine, you should receive a shot of HBIG-in addition to continuing the vaccine series-within 14 days of being exposed to the virus. ...

It is estimated that about 3,200 people get bacterial meningitis and associated Meningitis B Vaccine septicaemia in the UK each year. People of any age can develop the disease, but infants and teenagers are particularly susceptible.. The single most effective way to prevent meningitis is to vaccinate. The Meningitis B vaccine was licensed for use in Europe in January 2013. In 2014 the UK Joint Committee for Vaccination and Immunisation recommended the vaccine for routine use and vaccination of babies in the NHS. This commenced in September 2015. However, the NHS is only omit be vaccinating babies. If your child wasaged over 4 months at the start of the programme, they will not be eligible on the NHS and there is no catch-up programme currently planned. The Meningitis B vaccine is available privately though, for those who wish to vaccinate their children.. If you wish to discuss vaccinating yourself or your child, or to book an appointment, please call Ashtead Hospital: 01372 221 400 or New ...
