Hepatitis B Immune Globulin (Human) provides passive immunization for individuals exposed to the hepatitis B virus (HBV) as evidenced by a reduction in the attack rate of hepatitis B following its use.1-6 The administration of the usual recommended dose of this immune globulin generally results in a detectable level of circulating anti-HBs which persists for approximately 2 months or longer. The highest antibody (IgG) serum levels were seen in the following distribution of subjects studied: 7
|DAY||% OF SUBJECTS|
Mean values for half-life were between 17.5 and 25 days, with the shortest being 5.9 days and the longest 35 days. 7 Cases of type B hepatitis are rarely seen following exposure to HBV in persons with preexisting anti-HBs. No confirmed instance of transmission of hepatitis B has been associated with this product. In a clinical study in eight healthy human adults receiving another hyperimmune immune globulin product treated with solvent/detergent, Rabies Immune Globulin (Human), HyperRAB® S/D, prepared by the same manufacturing process, detectable passive antibody titers were observed in the serum of all subjects by 24 hours post injection and persisted through the 21 day study period. These results suggest that passive immunization with immune globulin products is not affected by the solvent/detergent treatment.

Hyperhep B Overview
Hyperhep B Drug Class
Hyperhep B is part of the drug class:
What is Hyperhep B (hepatitis B immune globulin)?
Hepatitis B immune globulin is made from human plasma containing proteins that protect against the type B form of hepatitis (inflammation of the liver).
Hepatitis B immune globulin is used to prevent hepatitis B in people receiving a liver transplant, and in babies born to mothers infected with hepatitis B. It is also used to prevent hepatitis B in people who have been exposed to hepatitis B through contaminated blood products, sexual contact with an infected person, or living in a home with an infected person.
Hepatitis B immune globulin is not a vaccine. Therefore it will not provide long-term protection from hepatitis B. For long-term protection you must receive a hepatitis B vaccine such as Engerix-B, Recombivax HB, or Twinrix.
Hepatitis B immune globulin may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
What should I discuss with my health care provider before receiving Hyperhep B (hepatitis B immune globulin)?
You should not receive hepatitis B immune globulin if you are allergic to it.
Hepatitis B immune globulin may increase your risk of blood clots, especially if you have:
heart disease, coronary artery disease (hardened arteries), history of blood clots;
risk factors for coronary artery disease (such as menopause, smoking, being overweight, having high blood pressure or high cholesterol, having a family history of coronary artery disease, being an older adult);
if you need to use a blood thinner;
if you take birth control pills or hormone replacement;
if you use certain types of catheters; or
if you are bedridden or otherwise debilitated.
To make sure hepatitis B immune globulin is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:
an allergy to human immune globulins;
bleeding or blood clotting disorder such as hemophilia; or
Hepatitis B immune globulin is made from human plasma (part of the blood) which may contain viruses and other infectious agents. Donated plasma is tested and treated to reduce the risk of it containing infectious agents, but there is still a small possibility it could transmit disease. Talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits of using this medication.
FDA pregnancy category C. It is not known whether hepatitis B immune globulin will harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant while using this medication.
It is not known whether hepatitis B immune globulin passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Tell your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby.
What happens if I overdose?
Since this medication is given by a healthcare professional in a medical setting, an overdose is unlikely to occur.
Hyperhep B (hepatitis B immune globulin) side effects
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Call your doctor at once if you have:
fever, mouth sores, red or swollen gums;
a light-headed feeling, like you might pass out;
liver problems--upper stomach pain, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes);
symptoms of fluid buildup around your lungs--chest pain, pain when you breathe, rapid heart rate, feeling light-headed or short of breath (especially when lying down); or
symptoms of a blood clot or stroke--sudden numbness or weakness (especially on one side of the body); chest pain, trouble breathing, rapid heart rate, coughing up blood; or pain, swelling, warmth, or redness in your arms or legs.
Common side effects may include:
nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, upset stomach;
back pain, tired feeling;
tremors, memory problems, agitation, vision problems;
cold symptoms such as stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat;
mild rash; or
