  Purpose

Patients with chronic renal disease have to be vaccinated as soon as dialysis is forestalled and this could improve seroconversion rate of hepatitis B vaccination.

In this study, the investigators aimed to compare seroconversion rates and immune response rates using four doses of 40 μg and three doses of 20 μg of Euvax B recombinant hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) vaccine given to predialysis CKD patients.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Hepatitis B surface antibody mIU/ml [ Time Frame: 8-10 weeks after the 6-month dose of vaccine ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Anti-HBs titres less than 10 mIU/ml were defined as non-seroconversion or non-responder. Anti-HBs titres greater than or equal to 10 mIU/ml but less than 100 mIU/ml were defined as seroconversion with low level antibody. Anti- HBs titres greater than or equal to100 mIU/ml were defined as seroconversion with protective levels of hepatitis B antibody.

Detailed Description:

In an open, randomized clinical trial, the investigators compared seroconversion rates in 51 predialysis patients with mild and moderate chronic renal failure using either 40 μg 4 doses or 20 μg 3 doses of Euvax B recombinant hepatitis B vaccine administered at 0, 1, 2, 6 and 0, 1, 6 months respectively.
