Hepatitis B vaccine joins the fight against pandemic disease



Hepatitis B vaccine joins the fight against pandemic disease



World Health Forum 11(2): 165-168



Hepatitis B causes around 2 million deaths each year from cirrhosis or primary liver cancer. Vaccine, derived either from plasma or by a recombinant DNA method, can prevent these deaths and should therefore be added to the Expanded Programme on Immunization. Where perinatal infection is common the first dose of vaccine must be given as soon after birth as possible; otherwise it may be given several weeks later.
