Primary Outcome(s)
Main Objective: To compare the proportion of patients with protective levels of antibodies against HBV at 3 months after the first
dose, in immunosuppressed patients, between those vaccinated with an anti-hepatitis B vaccine adjuvanted with
AS04C versus those vaccinated with anti-hepatitis B vaccine with increased antigenic load.
Primary end point(s): Main variable for vaccine response assessment (immunogenicity):
Level of antibodies against HBV surface antigen (HBsAg) one month after the third dose =10UI, which will be
determined by enzyme-immunoassay.
Secondary Objective: To compare the proportion of patients with protective levels of antibodies against HBV at 3 months after the first
dose, in immunosuppressed patients, between those vaccinated with an anti-hepatitis B vaccine adjuvanted with
1. To compare the proportion of patients with protective levels of antibodies against HBV at 7 and 12 months
after the first dose, in immunosuppressed patients, between those vaccinated with anti-hepatitis B vaccine
adjuvanted with AS04C and those vaccinated with an increased antigenic load.
2. To compare the levels of antibodies against HBV at 3, 7 and 12 months of the first dose, in
immunosuppressed patients, between patients vaccinated with anti-hepatitis B vaccine adjuvanted with
AS04C and those vaccinated with an increased antigenic load vaccine.
3. To describe all adverse events that could appear during research.
Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point: During the clinical trial.
Secondary Outcome(s)
Secondary end point(s): Secondary endpoints of immunogenicity:
• Level of antibodies against HBV surface antigen at the end of the vaccination schedule, which will be determined by
enzyme-immunoassay between 1 and 2 months after the last dose.
• Level of antibodies against HBV surface antigen one year after the end of the vaccination schedule, which will be
determined by enzyme-immunoassay
(Patients will be considered responders to the vaccine when the antibody titer against HBsAg is equal to or greater
than 10IU/l. In the patients who don’t respond after the last dose of vaccination the determination at 12 months won’t
be performed. These non-responding patients will receive the usual clinical pattern, revaccination with a second
complete series, and there would be no more follow-up from the study).
Descriptive variables of subgroups:
- HIV patients:
• Level of CD4 lymphocytes and determination of viral load one month before the first dose, one month after
the third dose, between one and two months after the last dose, and 12 months after the first dose.
-HSCT patients:
• Follow up to detect any evidence of Graft-Versus-Host-Disease (GVHD)
• Type of transplant, autologous or allogeneic
• Clinical condition that cause the transplant
-Rheumatologic patients:
• Main clinical condition
• Date of diagnosis
• Other immunosuppressive treatment (besides Rituximab or Infliximab: type of drug, start and end time)
-Cancer patients:
• Stage of cancer
• Date of diagnosis
• Histological type of cancer
• Treatment (chemotherapy): start and end time
Timepoint(s) of evaluation of this end point: During the clinical trial.
