Additional detail on the decision was not provided. Lilly is the latest pharmaceutical company to pause clinical trials for a coronavirus treatment or vaccine, joining Johnson & Johnson (which paused its vaccine trial yesterday), and AstraZeneca (which paused its vaccine trial in September before resuming them the following week).
