Bloomberg (9/12, Baker) reported the University of Oxford and AstraZeneca “have restarted a U.K. trial of an experimental COVID-19 vaccine after it was halted over concerns about a participant who fell ill.” Bloomberg adds that while “temporary halts are common in vaccine trials, the interruption to the closely watched Astra-Oxford study had raised concerns about the viability of one of the fastest-moving experimental shots seeking protection from the pandemic.”
