ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This is notice, in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209(c)(1) and 37 CFR 404.7(a)(1)(i), that the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services, is contemplating the grant of an exclusive license worldwide to practice the invention embodied in U.S. Patent 5,792,775, issued on August 11, 1998, entitled ‘‘Nitroxides as Protectors Against Oxidative Stress,’’ to Mitos, Inc. having a place of business in the State of California. The field of use may be limited to therapeutics for the treatment and/or protection of tissue damage caused by ionization radiation. The United States of America is the assignee of the patent rights in this invention. This announcement is the first notice to grant an exclusive license to this technology. DATES: Only written comments and/or application for a license which are received by the NIH Office of Technology Transfer on or before June 27, 2005 will be considered. ADDRESSES: Requests for a copy of the patent, inquiries, comments and other materials relating to the contemplated license should be directed to: Pradeep Ghosh, J.D., Ph.D., M.B.A., Technology Licensing Specialist, Office of Technology Transfer, National Institutes of Health, 6011 Executive Boulevard, Suite 325, Rockville, MD 20852–3804; telephone: (301) 435–5282; Facsimile: (301) 402–0220; e-mail: ghoshpr@mail.nih.gov.] This technology relates to to the use of a biologically compatible composition containing an effective amount of a metal independent nitroxide compound as an antioxidant capable of protecting cells, tissues, organs, and whole organisms against deleterious effects of harmful oxygen-derived species generated during oxidative stress SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate jul<14>2003 11:52 Apr 25, 2005 Jkt 205001 induced by ionizing radiations. Nitroxides are low molecular weight molecules and easily soluble in aqueous solutions. They are active within the biological pH range of 5–8, non-toxic at effective concentrations and can be easily attached to several organic molecules that may facilitate targeting of the molecules to specific organs or organelles. These properties of nitroxides make them ideal for treatment and protection of radiation induced cellular and tissue damages. The prospective exclusive license will be royalty-bearing and will comply with the terms and conditions of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7. The prospective exclusive license may be granted unless, within 60 days from the date of this published Notice, NIH receives written evidence and argument that establishes that the grant of the license would not be consistent with the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404.7. Properly filed competing applications for a license filed in response to this notice will be treated as objections to the contemplated license. Comments and objections submitted in response to this notice will not be made available for public inspection, and, to the extent permitted by law, will not be released under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552. Dated: April 18, 2005. Steven M. Ferguson, Director, Division of Technology Development and Transfer, Office of Technology Transfer, National Institutes of Health.

Proposed Project: Emergency Response Grants Regulations—42 CFR Part 51— (OMB No. 0930–0229)—Extension This rule implements section 501(m) of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 290aa), which authorizes the Secretary to make noncompetitive grants, contracts or cooperative agreements to public entities to enable such entities to address emergency substance abuse or mental health needs in local communities. The rule establishes criteria for determining that a substance abuse or mental health emergency exists, the minimum content for an application, and reporting requirements for recipients of such funding. SAMHSA will use the information in the applications to make a determination that the requisite need exists; that the mental health and/or substance abuse needs are a direct result of the precipitating event; that no other local, State, tribal or Federal funding sources are available to address the need; that there is an adequate plan of services; that the applicant has appropriate organizational capability; and, that the budget provides sufficient justification and is consistent with the documentation of need and the plan of services. Eligible applicants may apply to the Secretary for either of two types of substance abuse and mental health emergency response grants: Immediate awards and Intermediate awards. The Number of respondents 42 CFR citation former are designed to be funded up to $50,000, or such greater amount as determined by the Secretary on a caseby-case basis, and are to be used over the initial 90-day period commencing as soon as possible after the precipitating event; the latter awards require more documentation, including a needs assessment, other data and related budgetary detail. The Intermediate awards have no predefined budget limit. Typically, Intermediate awards would be used to meet systemic mental health and/or substance abuse needs during the recovery period following the Immediate award period. Such awards may be used for up to one year, with a possible second year supplement based on submission of additional required information and data.

organizations. These organizations include psychiatric hospitals, 
general hospitals with separate psychiatric services, multiservice 
mental health organizations, residential treatment centers, and 
freestanding outpatient clinics and partial care organizations.
    A sample of approximately 2,500 mental health organizations/
programs will provide information on an average sample of 8 admissions 
and 8 persons under care in the programs. National estimates will be 
generated on the number of persons admitted to and under care in these 
organizations, and on the sociodemographic, clinical, and service use 
characteristics of these persons. This survey will update a previous 
sample survey conducted in 1997 (OMB No. 0930-0114).
