(CNN) Drug giant AstraZeneca said Tuesday it had paused global trials of its coronavirus vaccine because of an unexplained illness in one of the volunteers.”

As part of the ongoing randomized, controlled global trials of the Oxford coronavirus vaccine, our standard review process triggered a pause to vaccination to allow review of safety data,” the company said in a statement sent to CNN.

National Institutes of Health director Dr. Francis Collins told a Senate hearing Wednesday that it’s a standard precaution in vaccine trials meant to ensure experimental vaccines don’t cause serious reactions among participants.
