  • Stefan Johansson changed the title to HBIg for extreme premature babies - what do you if maternal serology is unknown?

This would depend on the baseline risk of maternal hepatitis B-infections.

 

We do not give HB-Ig and/or HB-vaccines in this situation. But, we have a good understanding of whom needs HB-Ig/vaccines. The maternity health care checks serologies and practically all pregnant women in Sweden visit such maternity health centers.
