This study will evaluate the persistence of the immune response to HAV (hepatitis A virus) antigens and HBs (hepatitis B surface) antigens in healthy adults previously vaccinated with Twinrix™ Adult in the primary study, HAB-032 (208127/022. The subjects will be invited for blood sampling 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20 years after the primary vaccination to evaluate the antibody persistence. For subjects in whom low circulating antibodies are detected, the presence of immune memory against hepatitis A & B antigens will be investigated by the administration of a challenge dose of the appropriate vaccine (Havrix™ and/or Engerix™-B) at the next planned visit.
No new subjects will be recruited during this study.

This study will evaluate the persistence, immunogenicity and safety of Havrix® (hepatitis A vaccine) in adults primed in infancy. The enrolled subjects will be assessed for circulating an...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the persistence of hepatitis A antibodies, 8 years and 10 years post vaccination with the complete series of Havrix (2 doses) and the partial serie...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the differences of genotypes of hepatitis B and hepatitis C in Taiwan.
The purpose of this study is to assess the persistence of immunity to hepatitis B in children who received three consecutive doses of HBV vaccine (EngerixTM-B) in infancy. The Protocol Pos...
Dried blood spots (DBS) are a convenient tool to enable diagnostic testing for viral diseases due to transport, handling and logistical advantages over conventional venous blood sampling. A better und...
Many people at high risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), e.g., men who have sex with men (MSM), are not optimally reached by current sexual health care systems with testing. To facilitate ...
We evaluated the serologic responses to different 2-dose combinations of inactivated HAV vaccines among HIV-positive individuals during an acute hepatitis A outbreak in Taiwan. In this 16-month retros...
Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C are amongst the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in pregnant women throughout the globe. This study is aimed at determining the frequency of these infections among...
The frequency of autochthonous hepatitis E virus (HEV) infections in Western countries has increased since the millennium, probably due to a higher awareness for HEV. The aim of this study was to a...
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans due to infection by VIRUSES. There are several significant types of human viral hepatitis with infection caused by enteric-transmission (HEPATITIS A; HEPATITIS E) or blood transfusion (HEPATITIS B; HEPATITIS C; and HEPATITIS D).
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS DELTA VIRUS, a defective RNA virus that can only infect HEPATITIS B patients. For its viral coating, hepatitis delta virus requires the HEPATITIS B SURFACE ANTIGENS produced by these patients. Hepatitis D can occur either concomitantly with (coinfection) or subsequent to (superinfection) hepatitis B infection. Similar to hepatitis B, it is primarily transmitted by parenteral exposure, such as transfusion of contaminated blood or blood products, but can also be transmitted via sexual or intimate personal contact.
A family of hepatotropic DNA viruses which contains double-stranded DNA genomes and causes hepatitis in humans and animals. There are two genera: AVIHEPADNAVIRUS and ORTHOHEPADNAVIRUS. Hepadnaviruses include HEPATITIS B VIRUS, duck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, DUCK), heron hepatitis B virus, ground squirrel hepatitis virus, and woodchuck hepatitis B virus (HEPATITIS B VIRUS, WOODCHUCK).
A species in the genus HEPATOVIRUS containing one serotype and two strains: HUMAN HEPATITIS A VIRUS and Simian hepatitis A virus causing hepatitis in humans (HEPATITIS A) and primates, respectively.
INFLAMMATION of the LIVER in humans caused by HEPATITIS C VIRUS, a single-stranded RNA virus. Its incubation period is 30-90 days. Hepatitis C is transmitted primarily by contaminated blood parenterally, and is often associated with transfusion and intravenous drug abuse. However, in a significant number of cases, the source of hepatitis C infection is unknown.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
