Deceased AstraZeneca Trial Volunteer Didn't Receive Vaccine

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.

A coronavirus vaccine trial participant has died. It was not clear whether the volunteer received the vaccine or a placebo shot as part of the trial, and Anvisa said no more information was being released for reasons of medical privacy.

A spokesperson from the company said: "We cannot comment on individual cases in an ongoing trial of the Oxford vaccine as we adhere strictly to medical confidentiality and clinical trial regulations, but we can confirm that all required review processes have been followed".

"AstraZeneca is working to expedite the review of the single event to minimise any potential impact on the trial timetable".

Anvisa, the Brazilian health authority, received information from an investigation into the death.

Woman In Her 30s Died From COVID-19 On A Flight
The Texas Tribune reports that Texas is seeing an increase in hospitalizations of COVID-19 patients. According to the outlet, it remains unclear if the woman knew she had contracted the coronavirus.

It was paused last month after a participant became ill, but following a review was allowed to continue.

The statement said that they can not give any comment regarding the individual cases in the known ongoing trial of the said Oxford vaccine but they do adhere strictly to the medical confidentiality as well as the clinical trial regulations. While temporary pauses in vaccine studies are common, AstraZeneca and Oxford have faced pressure to disclose more information about the United Kingdom episode.

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

"We are writing to let you know that the U.S. drug regulatory authority (Food and Drug Administration or FDA) has also now completed their analysis of the information relating to the participants concerned and has come to the same conclusion as the other drug regulators including the MHRA", the United Kingdom's Health Research Authority said in a letter, according to the publication.
