New clinical trials suspended due to shutdown
Every week, hundreds of new patients are admitted to new clinical trials through the National Institutes of Health.
But because of the government shutdown, those patients who are newly registered are being put on hold until the government resumes operation.
The NIH says about 200 people register for clinical trials every week.
Participants who are already in studies are still being treated and will continue with their trials.
