Licensee’s proprietary nanosphere encapsulation technology is understood to consist of: (1) Methods for manipulating the outer proteins of human papillomavirus-derived nanoparticles to create particles targeted to solid tumors and distant metastases; and (2) enhancements for the delivery of particles created by Licensee’s proprietary technology. DATES: Only written comments and/or applications for a license which are received by the NIH Office of Technology Transfer on or before April 25, 2013 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: Jennifer Wong, M.S., Senior Licensing and Patenting Manager, Cancer Branch, Office of Technology Transfer, National Institutes of Health, 6011 Executive Boulevard, Suite 325, Rockville, MD 20852–3804; Telephone: (301) 435–4633; Facsimile: (301) 402–0220; Email: wongje@mail.nih.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: There is extensive literature on the use of viral vectors, particularly those based on the adenovirus, to increase the potency of anti-tumor gene therapy. However, these approaches have had limited success because of limited anti-tumor effects and unacceptable toxicity. This invention describes the use of human papillomavirus pseudoviruses (PsV) as a cancer diagnostic and therapeutic. Preliminary studies showed that PsVs bind to ovarian tumor cells while normal tissues were not affected. PsVs does not infect several other normal intact tissues but continues to selectively infect additional cancer cells. This technology could be an effective anti-tumor therapy because it has shown increased infection of cancer cells with an inability to infect normal cells thereby reducing potential toxicity to patients. In addition to a potential anti-cancer therapeutic, this technology could also be used as a diagnostic tool in the detection of tumor masses. Detection can be achieved through the use of fluorescent dye coupled particles of PsVs that have preferential binding to tumor tissues and not normal tissues. The prospective exclusive license will be royalty bearing and will comply with the terms and conditions of 35 U.S.C. VerDate Mar<15>2010 19:07 Mar 25, 2013 Jkt 229001 209 and 37 CFR Part 404.7. The prospective exclusive license may be granted unless within thirty (30) 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 Part 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.

SAMHSA/CSAP believes that every state must build prevention capacity and infrastructure to prevent the onset and reduce the progression of substance abuse, including childhood and underage drinking, and to reduce substance abuse-related problems across the nation. Following the SPF five-step process, the state of Idaho will have the opportunity to use SPF SIG funds to develop a comprehensive prevention plan at the state level and support a broad range of sub-recipient communities to implement effective programs, policies and practices to reduce substance abuse and its related problems. By giving a SPF SIG to every state, including Idaho, SAMHSA will have effected nationwide, systemic change in preventing the onset and reducing the progression of substance abuse and substance abuse-related problems nationwide.
