Hepatitis Vaccine (HBV)/ Viral Loads

Oct 18, 1999

I'm a HC professional who's would like to get updated info on the prominence of viral load increases/ other effects after hepatitis vaccine administration to HIV+ persons.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

This is the only published paper and it is in kids. No change in viral load. Surprisingly, there are no papers published in adults. I cna't put my finger on an abstract that showed no change in viral load in adults on HAART after receiving HBV vaccine. Randomised trial of intradermal Mycobacterium vaccae or intradermal hepatitis B immunisation in children with HIV infection. Vaccine. 1999 Jun 4;17(20-21):2583-7. MH
