Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

Basically there have been a few case reports of the development of CIDP after the administration of hepatitis B vaccine. However more studies are needed to establish a causal relationship. Based on the current evidence we cannot accept or reject a causal relationship between hepatitis B vaccine and CIDP.

It says "The evidence is inadequate" for all the conditions, and doesn't say once "The evidence is adequate", so they don't know for sure.

Yes they don't know for sure due to the lack of studies, that is the reason that it cannot be proved or disproved that there is a causal relationship between hepatitis B vaccine and CIDP.
