Factors affecting inadequate response to HBV vaccine in hemodialysis patients: northeast anatolia survey with six hemodialysis centers

AbstractBackgroundIn hemodialysis patients Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is one of the problems. Because of HBV vaccine response is lower than in the general population, in this study it is aimed to determine the factors that may cause inadequate HBV vaccine response in hemodialysis patients.MethodsIn study, HBsAg, anti-HBs, anti-HBc IgG data belonging to 278 patients were obtained from file and computer records. It was seen that seronegative cases had been given recombinant HBV vaccine. Anti-HBs titers were monitored 1  month after vaccination was completed. According to this, the patients are divided into two groups. Those with anti-HBs

This study was aimed to assess the association of this serological pattern with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in patients with CHB.MethodsIn this cross-section study, 206 CHB patients with coexistence of HBsAg/anti-HBs and 206 CHB patients with HBsAg alone were included to evaluate the risk of HCC development by logistic regression analysis. In addition, a retrospective cohort of 260 patients with CHB was recruited to estimate the cumulative incidence of HCC by Kaplan–Meier analysis.ResultsThe serological pattern of coexistence of HBsAg/anti-HBs, with high levels of (“High”) HBsAg/low levels of (“L...

We report the case of a 10-year-old child treated for latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) with pyrazinamide (PZA) and levofloxacin after contact with a smear-positive multidrug-resistant tuberculosis adult. Over the course of the treatment, the patient developed a drug-induced fulminant hepatitis attributed to the combination of PZA and levofloxacin. This case highlights the hepatotoxicity of the association of second-line anti-TB treatment in children.
