Abstract: 
We read with interest the article by Taheriet al. regarding the efficacy of Hepatitis B vaccine in those who lost Hepatitis B surface antigen (HbsAg) during follow up (1).
As the authors mentioned, a protective anti-HBs level developed in 24% of chronic HBsAg-positive subjects who had already lost their HBsAg after hepatitis B vaccination, and the remaining cases need to be monitored for occult HBV infection. Subjects with no response after hepatitis B vaccination may have low levels of HBsAg or have immunologic tolerance to hepatitis B vaccination and no ability to produce anti-HBs antibody as reported previously.
