BACKGROUND The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends hepatitis B virus (HBV) immunization for all hemodialysis (HD) patients because they are at high risk of infection. Several studies have shown that the development of protective antibody titers after HBV vaccination is much lower in HD patients. We hypothesized that human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) would further impair the immune response to hepatitis B… CONTINUE READING
