Detailed Description:
OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of orally delivered HBsAg that is formulated as an expressed protein in transgenic potato tubers (HBV-EPV) at different doses and schedules. OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 4 treatment arms. ARM I: Participants consume placebo HBV-EPV on days 0, 14, 28, and 56. ARM II: Participants consume HBV-EPV expressing HBsAg on days 0 and 28 and placebo HBV-EPV on days 14 and 56. ARM III: Participants consume HBV-EPV expressing HBsAg on days 0, 28, and 56 and placebo HBV-EPV on day 14. ARM IV: Participants consume HBV-EPV expressing HBsAg on days 0, 14, 28, and 56. After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up at days 70, 84, 98, and 114.
