Hepatitis B Virus Vaccine

  • F. Deinhardt
Part of the Developments in Hematology and Immunology book series (DIHI, volume 5)


It is appropriate to start this article by looking back briefly at the recent development of our knowledge of hepatitis viruses, of hepatitis as a disease, and of its natural history because this process is the background to the specific immune prophylaxis of hepatitis.
