Qualitative analysis of the humoral immune response to the "a" determinant of HBs antigen after inoculation with plasma-derived or recombinant vaccine.

Abstract

Competitive inhibition assays using monoclonal antibodies reacting with defined sequence of the "a" determinant of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) indicate that the humoral response to plasma-derived and recombinant HBsAg vaccine is similar in quantitative and qualitative terms. Both vaccines evoke an antibody response to the RFHBs 1 epitope, which is known in animal experiments to be protective.
