Characterization of a Thermostable Hepatitis B Vaccine Formulation

This article, published in the journal Vaccine, reports on the development of a new hepatitis B vaccine formulation that is stable against repeated freezing at -20°C and is also stable for 12 months at 37°C. The improved stability of this hepatitis B vaccine could be a key factor in ensuring vaccine effectiveness, extending immunization coverage, simplifying immunization logistics, and reducing the costs associated with the cold chain.
