While the vaccine is not yet approved, the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommended in 2011 that all diabetes patients between the ages of 19 and 59 be vaccinated against hepatitis B, which could double or potentially triple Dynavax's existing market opportunity for the vaccine.
