Center for Substance Abuse Treatment; Notice of Meeting, 47845 [05-16164]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 156 / Monday, August 15, 2005 / Notices alterations in expression of the TGFb receptors I and II (TbRI and TbRII) are also observed during pancreatic cancer progression. These observations are consistent with an integral role of the TGFb pathway components in pancreas biology and disease progression. However, the molecular details and the target cell population of TGFb signals during pancreas development and disease are not known. SMAD proteins are downstream mediators of signals from TGFb 1,2,3 and activin, and SMAD proteins have been implicated as important factors in cellular proliferation, differentiation and migration. This invention identifies another important regulatory role for the TGFb-signaling pathway in insulin production. The inventors have shown that low levels of TGFb can suppress insulin production through the actions of the SMAD signaling proteins. Small molecule regulators of SMADdependent signaling may lead to better insulin production and allow better glucose regulation. Thus, controlled administration of TGFb signaling regulators may be useful in the treatment of diabetes, hyperglycemia and related complications. In addition to licensing, the technology is available for further development through collaborative research opportunities with the inventors. Anti-Marinobufagenin Antibodies and Methods for Their Use Alexei Bagrov et al. (NIA). U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/ 694,733 filed 27 Jun 2005 (HHS Reference No. E–092–2004/0–US–01). Licensing Contact: Fatima Sayyid; 301– 435–4521; sayyidf@mail.nih.gov. Pre-eclampsia is associated with increased blood levels of marinobufagenin (MBG), a steroid that increases blood pressure by inhibiting a membrane enzyme, Na/K ATPase, in the vascular wall. Pre-eclampsia complicates up to 10% of pregnancies in the U.S. and is a significant factor in causing maternal and fetal mortality and morbidity worldwide. The present invention relates to compositions and methods for detecting the presence of MBG in a biological sample. It also relates to methods for the use of monoclonal antibodies or antigen binding fragments as prophylactic, therapeutic, and diagnostic agents for the detection, inhibition and treatment of hypertension. In addition to licensing, the technology is available for further development through collaborative research opportunities with the inventors.

ACTION: Notice; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: We (Fish and Wildlife Service, Service) plan to send OMB a request to renew approval for information collections associated with our Policy for Evaluation of Conservation Efforts When Making Listing Decisions (PECE). We use the information that we collect as part of the basis for identifying conservation efforts that can contribute to a decision to not list a species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) or to list a species as threatened rather than endangered. DATES: You must submit comments on or before October 14, 2005. ADDRESSES: Send your comments on this information collection to Hope Grey, Information Collection Clearance Officer, Fish and Wildlife Service, MS 222–ARLSQ, 4401 North Fairfax Drive Arlington, Virginia 22203 (mail); hope_grey@fws.gov (e-mail); or (703) 358–2269 (fax). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: To request a copy of the information collection requirements or explanatory material, contact Hope Grey, Information Collection Clearance Officer, at the above addresses or by telephone at (703) 358–2482. For information related to the Policy for Evaluation of Conservation Efforts When Making Listing Decisions, please visit our Web site at http:// www.fws.gov/endangered/listing/pecefinal.pdf. The OMB regulations at 5 CFR 1320, which implement provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), require that interested members of the public and affected agencies have an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities (see 5 CFR 1320.8(d)). We will ask OMB to renew approval of the collection of information for certain types of conservation agreements, conservation plans, and similar documents in relation to PECE (68 FR 15100, March 28, 2003). The current OMB control number for this SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\15AUN1.SGM 15AUN1
