Twinrix Adult is a vaccine. Vaccines work by ‘teaching’ the immune system (the body’s natural defences) how to defend itself against a disease. Twinrix Adult contains small amounts of inactivated hepatitis A viruses and the ‘surface antigen’ (proteins from the surface) of the hepatitis B virus. Whena person is given the vaccine, the immune system recognises the viruses and surface antigens as ‘foreign’ and makes antibodies against them. If exposed to the viruses in the future, the immune system will be able to make antibodies more quickly. The antibodies will help to protect against diseases caused by these viruses.
