Hepatitis B
Biological: HBV-MPL vaccine 208129
Biological: Engerix™-B
Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional

Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: Study to Compare the Immunogenicity and Safety of GSK Biologicals' Novel Adjuvanted HBV Vaccine (0, 21-Day Schedule) to a Double Dose of Engerix™ -B (0, 7, 21-Day Schedule), in Pre-Liver Transplant Patients ≥ 18 y, Boosted at Month 6-12

  • History of allergic disease or reactions likely to be exacerbated by any component of the vaccine.
  • Acute, intercurrent disease at the time of enrollment.
  • Oral/axillary temperature of ≥ 37.5°C (≥ 99.5°F).
  • Administration of immunoglobulins and/or any blood products within one month preceding the first dose of study vaccine or planned administration/ administration during the study period.
