  1. A cost-effectiveness analysis of prevaccination testing for hepatitis B in adolescents and preadolescents.

    Article - En anglais


    To study the clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of prevaccination testing for hepatitis B virus in adolescents and preadolescents.


    Decision analysis model comparing (1) prevaccination testing for hepatitis B surface antibodies, (2) no testing, and (3) testing at the same time as the first vaccine dose.

    Sensitivity analyses of the first two strategies were performed varying the seroprevalence of hepatitis B surface antibodies, compliance with follow-up, and costs of testing.


    Charges for testing and vaccination were obtained from Children's Hospital and Medical Center in Seattle, Wash.

    Vaccination compliance, hepatitis B surface antibodies seroprevalence, and vaccine response rates are from published literature.
