Summary

Geometric mean titers were determined for three groups of medical students who had been vaccinated against hepatitis B with two different yeast-derived recombinant vaccines and one plasma-derived vaccine. The antibody kinetics for the three groups were similar over a period of 4 years. A formula for prediction of titers from the post-booster anti-HBs concentration is provided.
