Abstract

Demyelination events or multiple sclerosis following hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccination have been reported. We therefore compared the T-cell response to HBsAg in patients with CNS demyelination following HBV vaccination and in HBV-vaccinated healthy individuals. Our data showed no differences in terms of T-cell proliferation or cytokine production between these groups and may help to allay concerns that HBV vaccination might trigger a deleterious immune response.
