This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on February 24, 2012 (77 FR 11136) and allowed 60 days for public comment. There was one public comment that was not relevant to the scope, methodology, or burden of the study. The program staff submitted a response to the public comment. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment. The National Institutes of Health may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Proposed Collection: Title: A MultiCenter International Hospital-Based Case-Control Study of Lymphoma in Asia (AsiaLymph) (NCI) (OMB No. 0925–0654). Type of Information Collection Request: Extension. Need and Use of Information Collection: Incidence rates of certain lymphomas have increased in the United States and in many other parts of the world. The contribution of environmental, occupational, and genetic factors to the cause of lymphoma has generated a series of new findings from epidemiological studies conducted in the United States that have attempted to explain this increase. This study focuses on collecting critically needed information to understand and reduce the cancer burden from lymphoid malignancies in the Asian population, the incidence of which has risen in recent decades. Specifically, environmental exposures to industrial emissions, genetic susceptibility, viral exposures, early life exposures, ultraviolet (UV) radiation exposures, and other risk factors for lymphoma overall and specifically for populations in Asia will be examined. Patients from 19 participating hospitals will continue to be screened and enrolled. There will be a one-time computer-administered interview, and patients will also be asked to provide a one-time blood and buccal cell mouth wash sample and lymphoma cases will be asked to make available a portion of their pathology sample. Frequency of Response: Once. Affected Public: Individuals. Type of Respondents: Newly diagnosed patients with lymphoma or patients undergoing surgery or other treatment for noncancer related medical issues who live in Taiwan and in Hong Kong, Chengdu and Tianjin, China will be enrolled at treating hospitals. The annual reporting burden is estimated at 5,302 hours (see Table below). There are $77,000 in Capital Costs, Operating Costs, and/or Maintenance Costs to report.

Use of Information Collection: Incidence rates of certain lymphomas 
have increased in the United States and in many other parts of the

There will be a one-time computer-administered interview, and patients 
will also be asked to provide a one-time blood and buccal cell mouth

portion of their pathology sample. Frequency of Response: Once. 
Affected Public: Individuals. Type of Respondents: Newly diagnosed 
patients with lymphoma or patients undergoing surgery or other 
treatment for non-cancer related medical issues who live in Taiwan and 
in Hong Kong, Chengdu and Tianjin, China will be enrolled at treating 
hospitals. The annual reporting burden is estimated at 5,302 hours (see 
Table below). There are $77,000 in Capital Costs, Operating Costs, and/
or Maintenance Costs to report.
