Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the efficacy of Nabi-HB administered subcutaneously weekly for a total of 14 weeks in patients who previously underwent a liver transplant. Levels will provide evidence if effective anti-HB levels >150 IU/ML can be maintained. [ Time Frame: 14 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the safety of Nabi-HB administered subcutaneously weekly for a total of 14 weeks. [ Time Frame: 14 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 25
Study Start Date: April 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: September 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Arm One: Nabi-HB
All subjects will be administered Nabi HB Subcutaneously
Biological: Hepatitis B immune globulin (Human)

Hepatitis b Immune Globulin (Human)(Nabi-HB) 312 IU/L per dose administered subcutaneously.

Dosage will be according to each patients body weight, as follow:

< 75 kg: 500 IU weekly ( may be increase to 1,000 IU weekly if anti-HBs levels are <150 IU/ML > 75 Kg: 1,000 IU weekly

Other Names:
  • Hepatitis B Immune Globulin (Human)
  • Nabi-HB

Detailed Description:

This is a phase 3 prospective, single arm open label study to be conducted t approximately 4 study sited located in th e USA. Approximately 25 HBV DNA negative patients who underwent liver transplant at least one year prior, due to chronic hepatitis B infection will bwe eligible for study participation. The study consist of a total of 16 study visit and the duration of participation will be 20 weeks for each patients. Patients will be converted from the intravenous standard HBIG to Nabi-HB subcutaneous administration according to the individual scheduled dosing interval.
