Johnson & Johnson prepares to resume COVID vaccine trial in US
Johnson & Johnson said Friday it was preparing to resume the clinical trial of its experimental vaccine to fight COVID-19, which was suspended last week after a volunteer fell ill.
J&J said it was "planning to resume recruitment" for the phase 3 trial, which began in late September and should ultimately include 60,000 participants.
"After a thorough evaluation of a serious medical event experienced by one study participant, no clear cause has been identified," the group said in a statement.
"The company has found no evidence that the vaccine candidate caused the event."
