Another COVID Vaccine Trial Halted After Test Subjects Become Sick – 21st Century Wire

In a further blow to the US and UK governments and their pharmaceutical partners, another corporate vaccine firm has been forced to stop clinical trials because a test subject has fallen ill after taking their new experimental vaccine for coronavirus.

Johnson & Johnson Inc pharmaceuticals has temporarily halted its trials after one of its participants became sick.

“We have temporarily paused further dosing in all our Covid-19 vaccine candidate clinical trials, including the Phase 3 ENSEMBLE trial, due to an unexplained illness in a study participant,” said a company spokesperson.

The firm had been planning to ‘enroll’ some 60,000-more subjects for its experimental vaccine trial, but those plans have been put on hold while an independent safety committee can assess the situation.
