AGENCY HOLDING THE MEETING: Proposed Project The Gonococcal Isolate Surveillance Project (GISP) (OMB No. 0920–0307 exp. 3/31/2011)—Extension—National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dated: August 16, 2010. Robert deV. Frierson, Deputy Secretary of the Board. Background and Brief Description The objectives of GISP are: (1) To monitor trends in antimicrobial susceptibility of strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae in the United States and (2) to characterize resistant isolates. GISP provides critical surveillance for antimicrobial resistance, allowing for informed treatment recommendations. Monitoring antibiotic susceptibility is critical since Neisseria gonorrhoeae has demonstrated the consistent ability to gain antibiotic resistance. GISP was established in 1986 as a voluntary surveillance project and now involves 5 regional laboratories and 30 publicly funded sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinics around the country. The STD clinics submit up to 25 gonococcal [FR Doc. 2010–20677 Filed 8–17–10; 11:15 am] BILLING CODE 6210–01–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [60–Day 10–0307] Proposed Data Collections Submitted for Public Comment and Recommendations emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES In compliance with the requirement of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 for isolates per month to the regional laboratories, which measure susceptibility to a panel of antibiotics. Limited demographic and clinical information corresponding to the isolates are submitted directly by the clinics to CDC. During 1986–2009, GISP has demonstrated the ability to effectively achieve its objectives. The emergence of resistance in the United States to penicillin, tetracyclines, and fluoroquinolones among Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolates was identified through GISP. Increased prevalence of fluoroquinolone-resistant N. gonorrhoeae (QRNG), as documented by GISP data, prompted CDC to update treatment recommendations for gonorrhea in CDC’s Sexually Transmitted Diseases Treatment Guidelines, 2006 and to release an MMWR article stating that CDC no longer recommended fluoroquinolones for treatment of gonococcal infections. Under the GISP protocol, each of the 30 clinics submit an average of 20 isolates per clinic per month (i.e., 240 times per year) recorded on Form 1. The estimated time for clinical personnel to abstract data for Form 1 is 11 minutes per response. Each of the 5 Regional laboratories receives and processes an average of 20 isolates from 6 different clinics per month (i.e., 120 isolates per regional laboratory per month) using Form 2. For Form 2, the annual frequency of responses per respondent is 1,440 (120 isolates × 12 months). Based on previous laboratory experience, the estimated burden for each participating laboratory for Form 2 is 1 hour per response, which includes the time required for laboratory processing of the patient’s isolate, gathering and maintaining the data needed, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. For Form 3, a ‘‘response’’ is defined as the processing and recording of Regional laboratory data for a set of 7 control strains. It takes approximately 12 minutes to process and record the Regional laboratory data on Form 3 for one set of 7 control strains, of which there are 4 sets. The number of responses per respondent is 48 (4 sets × 12 months). There is no cost to the respondents other than their time.
