Hepatitis B Vaccine (rDNA) IP

Generic Name: 

Hepatitis B Vaccine (rDNA) IP

Description:

Recombinant DNA technology is used to make Hepatitis B Vaccine, which is a sterile suspension containing the purified, non-infectious major surface antigen of the Hepatitis B virus. Because the antigen is adsorbed onto molecules of high-affinity aluminum hydroxide gel, the suspension appears nearly white and transparent.

In recombinant technology, genetically engineered yeast cells of Pichia pastoris that carry the gene that codes for the major surface antigen protein of the Hepatitis-B virus produce the hepatitis-B surface antigen (HBsAg). Complex physical, chemical, and biochemical processes are used to purify HBsAg, which is found in yeast cells. The highly purified surface antigen that results spontaneously forms spherical particles containing non-glycosylated polypeptides in a lipid matrix with an average diameter of 20-24 nm. The HBsAg protein is made without using any human-derived substance.
