A branded formulation, Tritanrix-HepB manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, was granted marketing approval in the EU in 1996. Marketing approval lapsed in 2014.[2]

A review conducted in 2012 concluded that there was insufficient evidence to determine differences in safety and efficacy between DTP-HepB vaccine and Hib vaccine administered separately and pentavalent DTP-HepB-Hib vaccine.[3]
