Oxford University said Wednesday its coronavirus vaccine with British drugmaker AstraZeneca may not have caused an illness that led to the halt to trials earlier this month.
In an information sheet for prospective participants, Oxford University said, “After an independent review, these illnesses were either considered unlikely to be associated with the vaccine or there was insufficient evidence to say for certain that the illnesses were or were not related to the vaccine,” Reuters first reported.
A document has been sent to all volunteers from Oxford. It has been claimed that Volunteer's problems in the trial were not caused by the experimental AstraZeneca vaccine. A volunteer has posted these Oxford documents online. Let me tell you that on September 6, the trial of AstraZeneca vaccine was stopped due to severe swelling in the spine of a volunteer in the trial.
The Oxford document reads, 'The independent review of the trial showed no possibility that Volunteer's problem was in any way related to the vaccine. There is not enough evidence of volunteer health deteriorating due to the vaccine. After getting this information, the critics have advised to continue the trial.
