  Purpose

This study will look at what happens to the level of protection against hepatitis B (HB) disease if a 'helper' gel is applied to the skin over the injection site of a small dose of hepatitis B vaccine.

Further study details as provided by University of British Columbia:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • A single application of an immune modulating gel will enhance the protective response against hepatitis B disease when vaccination is given at the same time as gel as evidenced by increased HB antibody and T-cell response. [ Time Frame: at 30 days after vaccination ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Minimal adverse effects to gel application as noted by laboratory assessment of liver enzyme and complete blood count (CBC) and physical assessment of the site/surrounding area and solicited local and general post vaccine events. [ Time Frame: at 7 and 30 days post vaccine ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
