Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Anti-HBs seroprotection rates at Month 2. [ Time Frame: Month 2 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Anti-HBs geometric mean concentration, seropositivity rates, seroprotection rates and the percentage of subjects with antibody concentrations superior or equal to 100 mIU/ml after HB-AS02V vaccination, at all time points. [ Time Frame: Month 0, 1 and 2 ]
  • Occurrence and intensity of solicited local signs and symptoms, as well as occurrence, intensity and relationship to vaccination of solicited general signs and symptoms, within 4 days after administration of study vaccine (Day 0 to 3). [ Time Frame: Month 0 and 1 ]
  • Occurrence, intensity and relationship to vaccination of unsolicited symptoms after administration of study vaccine (Day 0 to 30) [ Time Frame: Month 0 and 1 ]
  • Occurrence, intensity and relationship to vaccination of all serious adverse events (SAEs) up to Month 2. [ Time Frame: Month 0 to 2 ]
