Clinical Trials of Covid Vaccines by Johnson & Johnson Paused

The clinical trials of Covid-19 Vaccines by Johnson & Johnson have been paused. This happened after a candidate reported an unexplained illness.

Even another pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca faced a similar issue due to which the trials of the vaccine have been suspended.
The company said that the illness was being reviewed by an independent data and safety monitoring board as well as the U.S. group’s clinical and safety physicians.

While AstraZeneca’s trials in Britain, Brazil, South Africa and India have since resumed, its U.S. trial is still on hold, pending a regulatory review.
Companies are required to investigate any serious or unexpected reaction that occurs during drug testing.
