Abstract

Yeast-derived hepatitis B vaccines, containing the small HBV envelope protein SHBAg, are immunogenic, safe and cost-effective in prevention of hepatitis B virus infection in neonates, children and adults. Newly developed pre-S/S hepatitis B vaccines may play a role in inducing fast and augmented seroconversion rates in special risk groups.
