DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES National Institutes of Health Prospective Grant of Exclusive License: Use of Licensed Patent Rights for Development of Therapies for Prostatic Diseases National Institutes of Health, Public Health Service, HHS. ACTION: Notice. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES 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, Department of Health and Human Services, is contemplating the grant of an exclusive patent license to practice the inventions embodied the following patents or patent applications U.S. Patent No. 6,946,133 issued September 20, 2005 and U.S. Patent Application No. 11/ 606,929 filed December 1, 2006, as well as all continuations, divisionals, and issued and pending foreign counterparts [HHS Ref. No E–062–1996/0]; U.S. Patent Application Nos. 60/334,669 and 10/497,003 filed November 30, 2001 and August 24, 2004 respectively, as well as all continuations, divisionals, and issued and pending foreign counterparts [HHS Ref. No. E–124–2001/0, 1]; and U.S. Patent No. 6,165,460 issued December 26, 2000 and U.S. Patent Application No. 09/693,121 filed October 20, 2000; as well as all continuations, divisionals, and issued and pending foreign counterparts [HHS Ref. No E–200–1990/4] to BN ImmunoTherapeutics, which is located in Mountain View, CA. The patent rights in these inventions have been assigned to the United States of America. The prospective exclusive license territory may be worldwide and the field of use may be limited to the use of Licensed Patent Rights for development of therapies for prostatic diseases. For the avoidance of doubt, said delivery formulation specifically excludes canary poxvirus vectors, NYVAC, eukaryotic expression vectors, aqueous-based delivery formulations, and recombinant yeast. DATES: Only written comments and/or applications for a license which are received by the NIH Office of Technology Transfer on or before January 14, 2008 will be considered. ADDRESSES: Requests for copies of the patent application, inquiries, comments, and other materials relating to the contemplated exclusive license should be directed to: Michelle A. Booden, PhD., Technology Licensing Specialist, VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:50 Nov 14, 2007 Jkt 214001 The present invention relates to isolated peptides comprising immunogenic peptides derived from PSA. These immunogenic peptides are considered agonist epitopes of the wild-type PSA– 3 cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) epitope, which is an agonist epitope modified from the wild type epitope and shows greater immune stimulating characteristics. This invention claims the physical composition and use of the PSA–3 agonist epitopes, including peptide, nucleic acid, pharmaceutical composition, and method of treatment. The PSA–3 agonist epitopes would have application in a number of traditional and non-traditional vaccine delivery systems for the treatment of cancer. The invention also describes the use of at least one target antigen or immunological epitope as an immunogen or vaccine in conjunction with various costimulatory molecules. 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 sixty (60) days from the date of this published notice, the 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. Applications for a license in the field of use filed in response to this notice will be treated as objections to the grant of the contemplated exclusive license. Comments and objections submitted 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.

Proposed Project: Evaluating Cultural Competence in Behavioral 
Healthcare Education and Training--NEW

    SAMHSA's Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) is soliciting 
comments concerning its request for approval of a new information 
collection from graduates of behavioral healthcare education and 
training programs. The Evaluating Cultural Competence in Behavioral 
Healthcare Education and Training Interview Guide for Faculty and 
Administrators (the Faculty/Administrator Interview Guide) and the 
Evaluating Cultural Competence in Behavioral Healthcare Education and 
Training Interview Guide for Graduates (the Graduate Interview Guide) 
will be used by CMHS to investigate faculty's, administrators', and

understanding and eliminating disparities in mental health services, 
which will ultimately help to transform the mental health system.
    The Interview Guides will be administered via telephone with 
faculty, administrators, and recent graduates of behavioral healthcare 
education and training programs. The Interview Guides will be used to 
describe how and to what degree the curricula taught in behavioral 
healthcare education and training programs advances cultural competence 
effectively in the respective disciplines. The Interview Guides will 
address the following:
    a. Respondent's gender, age, ethnicity, primary language, 
additional languages spoken, current status (faculty member, provider, 
researcher, government healthcare worker) and whether she/he is working 
in the field of training;
    b. How cultural competence is defined and conceived;
    c. How cultural competence training is implemented and provided to 
students in behavioral healthcare programs;
    d. The program's approach to cultural competence and what effect 
the approach should have on a student's professional development;
    e. Specific elements of programs that foster greater cultural 
awareness and sensitivity among students;
    f. Methods of cultural competence training and their importance;
    g. Training policies and guidelines related to cultural competence;
    h. How cultural competence training is assessed and how the results 
of assessments are incorporated back into the program;
    i. What methods are used to evaluate program success in terms of 
students' cultural competence training and how success is measured;
    j. Indicators used in measuring students' satisfaction with

    k. Respondent's perceptions about effectiveness of instruction or 
material during graduate training, and what could have made the 
instruction more effective; and
    l. How graduate training prepares students for professional 
practice.
    The Interview Guides will each include approximately 20-24 
questions and are expected to take about one hour to administer. The 
burden for conducting the interview is as follows:
