Study to Show That the Combined Hepatitis A and B Vaccine is Non-inferior to Monovalent Vaccines in Adults
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
All subjects will receive a dose of the vaccine that they received in the primary study (100382), approximately 4 years after the first dose. Blood samples will be taken before and after the administration of the vaccine dose to evaluate the anti-HAV and anti-HBs antibody response.
