In a prospective randomized trial, 918 children aged between 3 mo and 11 yr who were negative for all hepatitis B markers were randomized to receive two 5-mug doses of hepatitis B recombinant DNA yeast vaccine at 0 and 1 mo (group 1), three 5-mug doses of hepatitis B recombinant DNA yeast vaccine at 0, 1 and B mo (group 2) or three 10-mug doses of plasma-derived hepatitis B vaccine (group 9).
The HBs antibody response rate at 8 mo was between 93% and 99%; it was still 75% to 87% at 5 yr in all three groups.
Geometric mean titers at 1 yr were 89, 1,085 and 858 mIU/ml in groups 1, 2 and 9, respectively.
