Título Risk factors for lack of detectable antibody following hepatitis B vaccination of Minnesota health care workers
Información bibliográfica 22-29 Dec. 1993, Vol.270, No.24, p.2935-2939. Illus. 39 ref.
Resumen A total of 595 health care workers who had received hepatitis B vaccine underwent postvaccination testing for hepatitis B antibodies within 6 months of receiving the third dose of vaccine. Five variables were independently associated with a lack of antibodies: vaccine brand, smoking status, sex, age and body mass index. Results indicate that certain populations of health care workers are at increased risk of not responding to hepatitis B vaccination. Further studies evaluating the immunogenicity of currently available hepatitis B vaccines in persons at high risk for primary vaccine failure are needed.
