The potential of a panel of synthetic HBsAg peptides as components of a synthetic hepatitis B vaccine was assessed. Each was used in turn as probes to analyse human immune responses to a licensed plasma-derived HBV vaccine. Both humoral and cellular responses were analysed with synthetic peptides representing residues 124-147 of the surface antigen of the… CONTINUE READING
