Information Collection Request Title: Tissue and Organ Donor Epidemiology Study (TODES), OMB # 0990-New request, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health. Abstract: This Study is a request for a new data collection OMB Number: 0990-New TODES is being conducted in order to better understand the impact of donor screening and selection procedures, and to determine the extent of donor-donation level data that are collected for organ and tissue (including ocular) donors. The data that are obtained from Organ Procurement Organizations (OPOs) and Eye Banks will provide a better characterization of the deceased donor pool; information regarding data management and storage practices; and a measure of the degree of standardization of data collected by various organizations across the U.S. TODES may provide better estimates of the risk of HIV, HBV and HCV infections associated with organ and tissue transplantation and the potential for disease transmission; illustrate differences in laboratory screening methods and the impact of protocol variations; and serve as a pilot for future studies. This retrospective study will provide a framework for future, prospective studies of organ and tissue donors that could inform policy decisions regarding donor qualification procedures and, potentially, increase the donor pool. A workshop in June 2005 (‘‘Preventing Organ and Tissue Allograft-Transmitted Infection: Priorities for Public Health Intervention’’) identified gaps in organ and tissue safety in the United States.1 Participants developed a series of allograft safety initiatives, assessed progress, and identified priorities for future interventions. Despite progress, improved recognition and prevention of donor-derived transmission events is needed. It was concluded that this requires systems integration across the organ and tissue transplantation communities including organ procurement organizations, eye and tissue banks, and transplant infectious disease experts.

Proposed Collection: HIV Study in Blood Donors from Five Chinese Regions, 0925–0596 reinstatement with change, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI). Need and Use of Information Collection: This Study is a reinstatement with change of OMB Number: 0925– 0596 expiration date, January 31, 2012. To better understand the diversifying and changing Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) epidemic, and contemporary HIV risk factors, especially those associated with recent HIV infections, this HIV risk factor study in China is proposed as part of the Recipient Epidemiology and Donor Evaluation Study-III (REDS–III). The major objectives of the study will be to evaluate the proportion of blood donors in China who test positive for HIV and have acquired their infection recently or more remotely; the risk of releasing a blood product that contains HIV (HIV residual risk); and the risk factors associated with HIV infection in China. The study will also assess the PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 frequency of distinct HIV–1 viral lineages and drug resistant mutations among HIV-positive blood donors. In 2011, there were 780,000 people infected with HIV in China and it is estimated that over 300,000 HIV infected people in China are not aware of their infection status. The large migrating population and the complexity of HIV transmission routes in China make it difficult to implement a comprehensive and effective national HIV control strategy. Risk factors for infections can change over time; thus, identifying factors that contribute to the recent spread of HIV in a broad crosssection of an otherwise unselected general population, such as blood donors, is highly important for obtaining a complete picture of the epidemiology of HIV infection in China. Because the pace of globalization means infections can cross borders easily, the study objectives have direct relevance for HIV control in the US and globally. Recent years have seen an increase in blood donations from repeat donors in most Chinese regions. This increase permits longer-term follow-up and testing of repeat donors which allow for calculation of new HIV infection rates and residual risks. The HIV data, for both recently and remotely acquired infections, from the proposed study will complement existing data on HIV risks obtained from general and high risk populations to provide comprehensive HIV surveillance data for China. This study will also monitor genetic characteristics of recently acquired infections through genotyping and drug resistance testing, thus serving a US and global public health imperative to monitor the genotypes of HIV that have recently been transmitted. For HIV, the additional monitoring of drug resistance patterns in newly acquired infection is critical to determine if currently available antiretroviral medicines are capable of combating infection. Genotyping and host response information are scientifically important not only to China, but to the US and E:\FR\FM\28AUN1.SGM 28AUN1
