ADDRESSES: Suppression of Allergic Asthma by Ascaris Antigens Description of Technology: Available for licensing and commercial development are compositions and methods for suppressing allergic reactions, as well as Th-1 and Th-2 associated immunological diseases, by administering any of the two identified Ascaris polypeptide antigens, or active fragments or variants thereof, to the affected subject. Allergic asthma is characterized by antigen-specific IgE production, reversible airway hyper-reactivity and eosinophilic infiltration of the airways. There is a dramatic increase in the prevalence of allergic disorders in emerging and industrialized countries and studies suggest that the hygienic environment in those countries may not provide allergy-protective mechanisms associated with some forms of infection. Recent studies have found that helminth infection may suppress the development of allergic disease. Helminth infections currently affect over 2 billion people PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 worldwide, causing significant morbidity. The most successful geohelminths are members of the Ascaris species, including A. lumbricoides and A. suum, which are known to infect 1.5 billion people. The inventors studied the modulation of allergic disease mediated by a chronic A. suum infection in their murine model of ragweed-induced allergic conjunctivitis and allergic asthma, and demonstrated that the infection prevents allergic inflammation in sites distal from larval migration. This protection was due, in part, to the induction of immunoregulatory cytokines such as IL– 10. In further studies, they demonstrated that a cocktail of antigens from the pseudocoelomic fluid (PCF) of A. suum, administered during ragweed sensitization, significantly reduced the eosinophil migration into the conjunctiva, pulmonary eosinophilic inflammation, and total lung pathology induced by the ragweed. PCF exposure also reduced the secretion of the proallergic cytokines IL–5 and IL–13 in the broncho-alveolar lavage fluid after ragweed exposure. All findings suggest PCF is capable of suppressing the allergic response to a traditional allergen and at multiple tissue sites. In further studies, the inventors determined that the protection conferred by PCF to allergic inflammation was through a specific first antigenic protein isolated from PCF, results that were confirmed by using the recombinant form of the first antigen.

Proposed Project: The Nurse Faculty Loan Program (NFLP): Annual 
Operating Report (AOR) Form--NEW

    The Annual Operating Report (AOR) provides information on the Nurse 
Faculty Loan Program (NFLP) funded loan activities. Under Title VIII of 
the Public Health Service Act, as amended by Public Law 107-205, 
Section 846A, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) enters 
into an agreement with a school of nursing to establish and operate the 
NFLP fund. HHS makes an

[[Page 52887]]

award to the school in the form of a Federal Capital Contribution 
(FCC). The award is used to establish a distinct account for the NFLP 
loan fund at the school or is deposited into an existing NFLP fund. The 
school of nursing makes loans from the NFLP fund to eligible students 
enrolled full-time in a master's or doctoral nursing education program 
that will prepare them to become qualified nursing faculty. Following 
graduation from the NFLP lending school, loan recipients may receive up 
to 85 percent NFLP loan cancellation over a consecutive four-year 
period in exchange for service as full-time faculty at a school of 
nursing. The NFLP lending school collects any portion of the loan that 
is not cancelled. The lending school deposits monies from loan 
collection and repayment into the NFLP loan fund to make additional 
NFLP loans. The school of nursing must keep records of all NFLP loan 
fund transactions.
    The NFLP Annual Operating Report is used to collect information 
relating to the NFLP loan fund operations and financial activities for 
a specified reporting period (July 1 through June 30 of the academic 
year). Participating schools will complete and submit an electronic 
copy of the AOR annually to provide the Federal Government with current 
and cumulative information on: (1) The number and amount of loans made, 
(2) the number of NFLP recipients and graduates, (3) the number and 
amount of loans collected, (4) the number and amount of loans in 
repayment, (5) the number of NFLP graduates employed as nurse faculty, 
and (6) NFLP loan fund receipts, disbursements and other related costs. 
The NFLP loan fund balance is used with other criteria to determine the 
annual award to the school.
    Once the AOR is completed by the participating school, the AOR will 
be submitted electronically through the HRSA Electronic Handbook.
    The estimate of burden for this form is as follows:
