Response to Hepatitis B Vaccine in Celiac Disease Patients

This study has been terminated.
(Believed that a better study was to compare the response to engerix B vs Sci-B-Vac vaccine in this patient group.)

  Purpose

Celiac disease and infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) are very prevalent worldwide and carry a high morbidity rate. It has been recently shown that patients with celiac disease very often fail to develop immunity after standard vaccination for HBV during infancy. In this study, we will evaluate whether a second vaccination series via a different route of administration (into the skin rather than the muscle) results in a better immunological response in celiac patients. Eligible patients will be randomized to receive a 3-dose vaccination series into the skin or to the muscle. Rate of responders and level of immunity will be compared. This study will facilitate better protection of celiac patients to this potentially deadly virus.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • 1. The primary endpoint of the study will be comparison of the geometric mean titers of anti-HBs between the intradermal and the intramuscular groups. [ Time Frame: two years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 1. Rate of responders four weeks after the completion of the series 2. Rate and characteristics of adverse drug reactions 3. Numerical increase in the antibodies titer before and after vaccination 4. Rate of responders in the cross over phase [ Time Frame: two years ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Estimated Enrollment: 210
Study Start Date: February 2009
Study Completion Date: March 2011
Primary Completion Date: March 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 1
celiac patients who did not respond to initial hepatitis B vaccine series , will receive repeat hep B vaccine via intramuscular route
Biological: hepatitis B vaccine (EngerixB)

Other Name: EngerixB, GSK
Active Comparator: 2
celiac patients who did not respond to initial hepatitis B vaccine series , will receive repeat hep B vaccine via intradermal route
Biological: hepatitis B vaccine (EngerixB)
A dose of 10mcg (0.5 ml) of the recombinant HBV vaccine will be administered intradermally in the deltoid region at zero, one and six months intervals
Other Name: (EngerixB, GSK)
