  • Brazilian Volunteer Who Took Part in Trials of Oxford Vaccine Died- Authorities

Brazilian health authority Anvisa said on Wednesday that a volunteer in a clinical trial of the Covid-19 vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University had died but added that the trial would continue. The Brazilian newspaper known as Globo as well as the news agency Bloomberg has both said that he was in fact within the control group and has in fact received a placebo vaccine rather than the actual test vaccine, citing different sources that are close to the trials.

AstraZeneca told the G1 that it did not yet have an official position on the death of the volunteer and did not comment on this information. Oxford University mentioned that there are no concerns surrounding the safety of the trials.

The university then stated that everything is now "proceeding as expected" and without any record of actual serious vaccine-related complications that are involving just about any of the known participating volunteers.

Oxford halted its AstraZeneca trials worldwide early in September to assess whether the vaccine was responsible for an adverse reaction in some subjects.

"The independent review in addition to the Brazilian regulator have recommended that the trial should continue", Oxford spokesperson Alexander Buxton said in a statement, according to Reuters.

It was paused last month after a participant became ill, but following a review was allowed to continue. While temporary pauses in vaccine studies are common, AstraZeneca and Oxford have faced pressure to disclose more information about the United Kingdom episode.

Interruption of the US trial raised concerns about the prospects of one of the world's fastest-moving shots and highlighted the hurdles researchers face when developing a vaccine.

So far, the D'Or Institute, which is administering the clinical trial in Rio, said 8,000 volunteers had received either the vaccine or a placebo in the trial.

The studies are likely to resume in the near future, according to Politico.
