Brief Summary:
This study is being done to determine if healthcare workers who have previously failed to respond to hepatitis B vaccine series will respond to a hepatitis B with CpG adjuvant (hepB-CpG) (Heplisav-B)

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Healthcare Worker, Hepatitis B Vaccine, Nonresponder Biological: Recombinant hepatitis B vaccine with CpG adjuvant Phase 4

Detailed Description:

Study Intervention Each individual who has completed at least 5 doses hepB vaccine with aluminum adjuvant series but is anti-HBs negative will be contacted by EHS staff and invited to receive the hepB-CpG two dose series on a 0 and 1 month schedule. Antibody to the surface antigen will be measured after the first dose during the visit for the administration of the second dose. One month after completion of the series, each immunized individual will have another anti-HBs measured.

Total Number of Subjects Up to 130 individuals will be recruited and enrolled. Study Population Healthcare workers who have received at least 5 doses of hepatitis B vaccine with aluminum adjuvant and have antiHBs < 10mIU/ml.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Healthcare worker
Healthcare worker who has previously received at least 5 doses of hepatitis B vaccine with aluminum adjuvant (Recombivax B or Engerix B) and has an antibody to the hepatitis B surface antigen (antiHBs) that is less than 10 mIU/ml.
Biological: Recombinant hepatitis B vaccine with CpG adjuvant
Each participant will receive two doses of hepB-CpG separated by one month and blood draw to measure antibody to the hepatitis B surface antigen prior to dose 2 and one month after dose 2.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants who failed to respond to 5 or more doses of hepatitis B vaccine with aluminum adjuvant who respond to hepatitis B vaccine with CpG adjuvant series [ Time Frame: one month after dose 2 (up to 84 days on study) ]
    Response is defined as AntiHBs >10 mIU/ml following two doses of hepB-CpG


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants who respond to a single dose of hepB-CpG [ Time Frame: one month after dose 1 (up to 42 days on study) ]
    Response is defined as AntiHBs >10 mIU/ml following a single dose of hepB-CpG

  2. Proportion of participants who are nonresponders with each risk factor [ Time Frame: one month after dose 2 (up to 84 days on study) ]
    A multivariate model will be developed by measuring the proportion of participants who are nonresponders with each risk factor. Potential risk factors include including age, smoking status, sex, diabetes, immunosuppression.
