Notice of Intent To Award Ebola Response Outbreak Funding to African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET), 63405-63406 [2014-25248]

Download as PDF 63405 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 205 / Thursday, October 23, 2014 / Notices project (a national surveillance system of such events). The objective of the project is to determine the annual number and temporal trends of SAEs associated with any treatment for LTBI in the United States. Surveillance of such events will provide data to support periodic evaluation or potential revision of guidelines for treatment of persons with LTBI. On December 9, 2011, CDC published the Recommendations for Use of an Isoniazid-Rifapentine Regimen with Direct Observation to Treat Latent Mycobacterium tuberculosis Infection in MMWR 2011;60(48);1650–1653. Isoniazid-Rifapentin (3HP) is a new biweekly 3-month treatment regimen for LTBI. Since 2011, there have been 28 reports of SAE; 26 of these were associated with 3HP. The CDC requests approval for a 3year extension of the previously approved National Surveillance for Severe Adverse Events Associated with Treatment of Latent Tuberculosis Infection. This project will continue the passive reporting system for SAEs associated with therapy for LTBI. The system will rely on medical chart review and/or onsite investigations by TB control staff. Potential respondents are any of the 60 reporting areas for the national TB surveillance system (the 50 states, the District of Columbia, New York City, Puerto Rico, and 7 jurisdictions in the Pacific and Caribbean). Data will be collected using the data collection form for SAEs associated with LTBI treatment. Based on previous reporting, CDC anticipates receiving an average of 10 responses per year from the 60 reporting areas. The data collection form is completed by healthcare providers and health departments for each reported hospitalization or death related to treatment of LTBI and contains demographic, clinical, and laboratory information. CDC will analyze and periodically publish reports summarizing national LTBI treatment adverse events statistics and also will conduct special analyses for publication in peer-reviewed scientific journals to further describe and interpret these data. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) collects data on adverse events related to drugs through the MedWatch: The FDA Medical Products Reporting Program (OMB#0910–0291, exp. 6/30/ 2015). CDC is encouraging health departments and healthcare providers to report SAEs to FDA. Reporting will be conducted through telephone, email, or during CDC site visits. CDC is requesting approval for approximately 60 burden hours annually. The only cost to respondents is time to gather medical records and time to complete the reporting form. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Type of respondent Form name Physician .........................................................
