This is due to the small size, high surface area per unit mass (i.e., specific surface area) or (in some cases) high aspect ratio of nanomaterials. Carbon nanotubes and nanofibers are among the nanomaterials of greatest interest from a public health perspective because of their potentially asbestiform properties (e.g., high aspect ratio) and toxicological evidence of possible fibrogenic, inflammatory, and clastogenic damage resulting from exposures at occupationally relevant levels. In addition, the useful properties of CNT and CNF have rendered them among the first nanomaterials to be commercially exploited in manufacturing settings. Thus, an epidemiologic study to determine whether early or late health effects occur from occupational exposure to CNT and CNF is warranted. The proposed research is a crosssectional study of the small current U.S. workforce involved with CNT and CNF in manufacturing and distribution, to be conducted in the following phases: (1) Industrywide exposure assessment study to evaluate worker exposure and further develop and refine measurement methods for CNT and CNF. This component will refine sampling and analysis protocols previously developed for the detection and quantification of CNT and CNF in US workplaces. 2) A cross-sectional study relating the best metrics of CNT and CNF exposure to markers of early pulmonary or cardiovascular health effects. After the sampling and analysis protocols have been established to measure CNT and CNF, an industrywide study of the association between exposure and health effects will be conducted. Medical examinations will be conducted and several biomarkers of early effect (for pulmonary fibrosis, cardiovascular disease, and genetic damage) will be measured in blood and sputum for workers exposed to a range of CNT and CNF levels. The study will include a questionnaire with a three-fold purpose: (1) To determine whether study participants have any contraindications for certain medical procedures to be conducted (spirometry and sputum induction), (2) to assist in interpretation of the biomarker results, and (3) to inquire about current and past exposure to CNT, CNF, and other chemicals, dusts, and fumes. The questionnaire will be given by NIOSH personnel as a computer-assisted personal interview (CAPI). After administration of the CAPI, medical examinations will be conducted to evaluate pulmonary function (via spirometry) and blood pressure, and sputum and blood will be collected. Statistical analyses will be conducted to determine the nature of the relation between exposure to CNT and CNF and these biomarkers of early effect, considering potential confounding factors such as smoking, age, gender, and workplace coexposures, including non-engineered ultrafine particles. The proposed project supports the NIOSH legislatively mandated industrywide studies program that conducts epidemiological and exposure assessment research studies to identify the occupational causes of disease in the working population and their offspring and to effectively communicate study results to workers, scientists, industry, and the public. The questionnaire will be administered one time only, at the worksite, to 100 workers involved in the production and use of CNT or CNT, over a three-year period. The study will be carried out during the participants’ regular work shift. There is no cost to respondents or their employers other than their time. We estimate that the average burden per response to be 22 minutes for the questionnaire and 20 minutes for the consent form. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annual burden hours are 23. ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Number of respondents Type of respondents Form name Nanomaterials Workers ..................................

These ongoing disease reports include: CreutzfeldtJakob Disease (CJD), Cyclosporiasis, Dengue, Hantavirus, Kawasaki Syndrome, Legionellosis, Lyme disease, Malaria, Plague, Q Fever, Reye Syndrome, Tickborne Rickettsial Disease, Trichinosis, Tularemia, Typhoid Fever, and Viral Hepatitis. Case report forms from state and territorial health departments enable CDC to collect demographic, clinical, and laboratory characteristics of cases of these diseases. We are requesting changes to the Legionellois form that will allow CDC to better detect potential clusters and outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease and to monitor changing epidemiological trends by collecting a greater level of detail for each legionellosis case. The burden to the respondents should be minimally affected by these proposed changes. The purpose of the proposed study is to direct epidemiologic investigations, identify and monitor trends in reemerging infectious diseases or emerging modes of transmission, to search for possible causes or sources of the diseases, and develop guidelines for prevention and treatment. The data collected will also be used to recommend target areas most in need of vaccinations for selected diseases and to determine development of drug resistance. Because of the distinct nature of each of the diseases, the number of cases reported annually is different for each. There is no cost to respondents other than their time.

Background and Brief Description

    The CDC seeks to improve the oral health of the nation by targeting 
efforts to improve the infrastructure of state and territorial oral 
health departments, strengthen and enhance program capacity related to 
monitoring the population's oral health status and behaviors, develop 
effective programs to improve the oral health of children and adults, 
evaluate program accomplishments, and inform key stakeholders, 
including policy makers, of program results. Through a cooperative 
agreement program (Program Announcement DP08-802 and DP10-1012), CDC 
has provide approximately $5 million per year over five years to 20 
states to strengthen their core oral health infrastructure and 
capacity. CDC funding also helps states reduce health disparities among
