New Delhi : A Volunteer’s health suddenly worsened due to the side effects of Coronavirus vaccine of the US drug maker company ‘Johnson & Johnson’. After this incident, all the vaccine trials of the company have been temporarily banned. Johnson & Johnson is conducting the third phase trial of the Coronavirus vaccine. This news may have also shocked President Donald Trump’s ambitions, as he claimed to have gotten vaccines in the United States before the presidential election.

Scientists are working on the vaccine day and night to save the world from the deadly Coronavirus. However, many times the hopes of people drown due to obstacles in the clinical trials. Earlier side effects of the vaccine being developed in the United Kingdom in collaboration with Astrazeneca and Oxford were also reported, after which dozens of clinical trials were stopped in the US and UK.

Johnson & Johnson issued a statement late on Monday night saying, ‘We have temporarily halted the clinical trials of all our COVID-19 vaccine candidates. The third phase trial is also included in this ban. During the study, this decision has been taken due to a sudden illness reported in a participant.’

In a statement issued by the company, it said, ‘We are following our guidelines. Volunteer’s sudden illness is being reviewed and evaluated by the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB). Also, our internal clinical trials and safety physicians are also investigating the side effects.’

Johnson & Johnson said last month that clinical trials in the early and mid-stage clinical trials of its COVID19 vaccine have shown good results on increasing immunity. The company also tested 60,000 people in a clinical trial. Johnson & Johnson was expected to receive the vaccine by the end of this year or early 2021.

However Johnson & Johnson has refused to give more information about the side effects appearing in Volunteer. It said, ‘We respect the privacy of the participants and are looking into the reasons for the volunteer falling ill. Therefore, it is important to correct all the data before sharing any information.’

In their statement, Johnson & Johnson said that it is a very common occurrence for volunteers to see such side effects during a vaccine trial. Adverse events, illnesses, or side effects are included. Even a person falling seriously ill is a part of a clinical trial. This happens especially in large research.

A few days ago there was a big debate on the side effects of the AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine. Due to this vaccine, a woman’s spine in the UK was severely swollen and she became very ill. After this, a decision was taken on behalf of the company to stop the trial. The chief executive of AstraZeneca later said that the patient’s condition is now improving.

Shortly after this incident, Oxford sent a document to all volunteers, claiming that Volunteer’s difficulty in the trial was not due to AstraZeneca’s experimental vaccine. After this statement came out, dozens of closed trial trials in Britain and America were resumed.
