  1. Prevention of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in health-care workers after accidental exposure : a comparison of two prophylactic schedules.

    Article - En anglais

    The efficacy of hepatitis B (HB) vaccine alone or combined with hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIg) in preventing hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection was studied in a controlled trial.

    Recombinant HB vaccine (Engerix-B, 20 mug) was given to 40 susceptible health-care workers within three days of exposure (Group B).

    In another group of 37 medical professionals a single dose of HBIg (0.06 mg/kg) was administered intramuscularly within three days of exposure, followed immediately by the first dose of vaccine (20 mug dose) (Group A).
