The NTP plays a critical role in providing needed scientific data, interpretations, and guidance on the appropriate uses of data to regulatory agencies and other groups involved in health-related research and in providing information to regulatory agencies about alternative methods for toxicity screening. The results of NTP’s long-term, generally two-year, toxicology and carcinogenicity studies, are published as NTP Technical Reports. The NTP uses established criteria to evaluate the findings and determine the strength of the evidence for conclusions regarding the carcinogenic activity of each substance evaluated. Panels are technical, scientific advisory bodies established to provide independent scientific peer review of the draft NTP Technical Reports. Copies of the charters for the designated committees can be obtained by accessing the FACA data base that is maintained by the Committee Management Secretariat under the General Services Administration.

Secretary of Health and Human Services, who is named as the respondent 
in each proceeding. The Secretary has delegated this responsibility 
under the Program to HRSA. The Court is directed by statute to appoint 
special masters who take evidence, conduct hearings as appropriate, and 
make initial decisions as to eligibility for, and amount of, 
compensation.
    A petition may be filed with respect to injuries, disabilities, 
illnesses, conditions, and deaths resulting from vaccines described in

PHS Act or as set forth at 42 CFR 100.3, as applicable. This Table 
lists for each covered childhood vaccine the conditions which may lead 
to compensation and, for each condition, the time period for occurrence 
of the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of significant 
aggravation after vaccine administration. Compensation may also be 
awarded for conditions not listed in the Table and for conditions that 
are manifested outside the time periods specified in the Table, but 
only if the petitioner shows that the condition was caused by one of 
the listed vaccines.
    Section 2112(b)(2) of the PHS Act, 42 U.S.C. 300aa-12(b)(2),

state of vaccination (if unknown then city and state of person or 
attorney filing claim), and case number. In cases where the Court has 
redacted the name of a petitioner and/or the case number, the list 
reflects such redaction.
    Section 2112(b)(2) also provides that the special master ``shall 
afford all interested persons an opportunity to submit relevant, 
written information'' relating to the following:

    1. The existence of evidence ``that there is not a preponderance 
of the evidence that the illness, disability, injury, condition, or 
death described in the petition is due to factors unrelated to the 
administration of the vaccine described in the petition,'' and
    2. Any allegation in a petition that the petitioner either:

disability, injury, or condition not set forth in the Vaccine Injury 
Table but which was caused by'' one of the vaccines referred to in 
the Table, or
    b. ``Sustained, or had significantly aggravated, any illness, 
disability, injury, or condition set forth in the Vaccine Injury 
Table the first symptom or manifestation of the onset or significant 
aggravation of which did not occur within the time period set forth 
in the Table but which was caused by a vaccine'' referred to in the
