Long-term protection against hepatitis B (HB) disease is dependent on persistence of a strong immune memory. This paper presents and discusses new knowledge that allows a better understanding of the mechanisms of long-term protection following hepatitis B vaccination. Studies have revealed links between specific lymphoproliferation, the in vivo humoral response and immune memory. The strength of immune memory and of a subsequent secondary immune response can therefore be predicted by the… CONTINUE READING
