  Purpose

In HIV infected patients, individuals exposed to the virus of Hepatitis B are more susceptible to develop a chronic and severe liver disease with a major risk of cirrhosis and liver cancer.

However, the existing protocol of vaccination against Hepatitis B is less efficient in HIV-infected patients than in non HIV-infected-patients, and, in case of response, its longevity has to be followed up carefully. This study compares the efficacy of the standard protocol vaccination with GenHevac-B and 2 other protocols, a double-dose of GenHevac-B and a set of intradermal injections of Genhevac-B, in HIV-infected patients with lymphocytes T CD4 level above 200 permm3.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • HIV-infected patients who seroconvert in the first two months after the last vaccination. Seroconversion is defined as antibodies AbHBs titers equal or above 10 mUI per ml. [ Time Frame: two months after the last injection;week 28, month 18, month 30 and month 42 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • According to the vaccine administration (IM or ID) comparison of AbHBs titers,permanence of the humoral response,intensity of clinical and biological events and predicting factors related to seroconversion [ Time Frame: two months after the last injection; week 28, month 18, month 30 and month 42 ]
