Core Tip Hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIG) combined with a potent nucleos(t)ide analog is recommended in patients undergoing liver transplantation for hepatitis B virus-associated disease. A survey was conducted to determine patients’ thoughts about three forms of HBIG treatment administration - subcutaneous (SC), intramuscular, and intravenous. Regarding current treatment, SC HBIG had the least negative impact on emotional well-being and social life, was most convenient, easiest to administer and least painful. Considering hypothetical HBIG products, SC was preferred over intramuscular and intravenous for ease of administration, convenience, and pain. For these patients, the most important considerations were ease of use, frequency, duration, and side effects.
