    Hepatitis B immune globulin remains a central component of prophylaxis in HBV-infected patients undergoing liver transplantation. Its monotherapy given at a high dosage can prevent recurrence in 65% to 80% of patients. The cost of long-term prophylaxis with high-dose HBIG is extremely high and combination therapy using HBIG with a nucleoside analog is more uniformly effective. The current protocol is combination of HBIG with a nucleoside analog after liver transplantation. These combination protocols
