Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Anti-HAV immune response to the challenge dose [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Anti-HBs antibody response to the challenge dose [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percentage of subjects with anti-HAV antibody titres ≥ 15 mIU/ml and GMTs calculated on seropositive subjects [ Time Frame: Two weeks and one month after the challenge dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Percentage of subjects with anti-HBs antibody titres ≥ 3.3 mIU/ml, ≥ 10 mIU/ml, ≥ 100 mIU/ml and anti-HBs GMTs calculated on seropositive subjects [ Time Frame: Two weeks and one month after the challenge dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence and intensity of solicited local symptoms [ Time Frame: In the 4-day follow-up period after the challenge dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence, intensity and relationship of solicited general symptoms [ Time Frame: In the 4-day follow-up period after the challenge dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence, intensity and relationship to vaccination of unsolicited symptoms reported [ Time Frame: During the 31-day follow-up period after the challenge dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Occurrence of all serious adverse events (SAEs) reported [ Time Frame: Following the administration of the challenge dose ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 213
Study Start Date: January 2008
Study Completion Date: June 2008
Primary Completion Date: May 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:
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.

Ages Eligible for Study:   41 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects who the investigator believes that they can and will comply with the requirements of the protocol.
  • A male or female who completed the primary vaccination phase of the study.
  • Written informed consent obtained from the subject.
  • If the subject is female, she must be of non-childbearing potential, or, if of childbearing potential, she must be abstinent or have used adequate contraceptive precautions for 30 days prior to vaccination, have a negative pregnancy test and must agree to continue such precautions for two months after completion of the vaccination series.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Use of any investigational or non-registered product other than the study vaccines within 30 days preceding the first dose of study vaccine, or planned use during the study period.
  • History of any hepatitis A or hepatitis B vaccination or infection, since the primary vaccination study.
  • History of allergic disease or reactions likely to be exacerbated by any component of the vaccine.
  • Acute disease at the time of enrolment.
  • Pregnant or lactating female.
