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 GSK Biologicals' TwinrixTM Adult. The subjects will be invited for blood sampling 16, 17, 18, 19 and 20 years after 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 (HavrixTM and/or EngerixTM-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 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...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the differences of genotypes of hepatitis B and hepatitis C in Taiwan.
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 ...
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...
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...
The pulsatile secretion of adrenocortical hormones and a stress reaction occurring when starting adrenal vein sampling (AVS) can affect the selectivity and also the assessment of lateralization when s...
Blood can be collected from rats in a number of sampling locations. For instance, the tail vein is a superior location for blood sampling. However, the tail vein is thin so that it is sometimes hard t...
Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.
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.
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 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.
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).
