Control of Communicable Diseases: Foreign; Requirements Relating to Collection, Storage, and Transmission of Airline and Vessel Passenger, Crew, and Flight and Voyage Information for Public Health Purposes, 3451-3452 [2019-02035]

Download as PDF 3451 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 29 / Tuesday, February 12, 2019 / Notices of invitation to its former blood testing program participants. To achieve the desired sample size, the other 11 percent of the exposure group (n=150, or 50 per year) will be recruited in Wave Two. These will be people who were eligible for the PFAS blood testing program but did not take part. The referent group will be recruited in Wave Three (n=275, or 92 per year), which can occur concurrently with Wave One and Wave Two. Wave Two and Wave Three recruits will call to volunteer after ATSDR opens those waves to enrollment. To restrict this study to drinking water exposures, any adult occupationally exposed to PFAS will not be eligible for the study (i.e., ever firefighters or in chemical manufacture). Likewise, children whose birth mothers were occupationally exposed will not be eligible. This restriction applies to both the exposure and the referent group. ATSDR assumes that five percent of the people who volunteer will not meet eligibility requirements. ATSDR will screen the 1,578 people from the NH DHHS PFAS blood testing program in Wave One (n=526 per year). ATSDR will screen at least 198 exposed people in Wave Two (or 66 per year), and at least 362 unexposed people in Wave Three (or 121 per year). This will require an annual time burden of 134 hours for eligibility screening. At enrollment, ATSDR will obtain adult consent, parental permission, and child assent before data collection begins. Each child will enroll with a parent, who ideally will be the child’s birth mother, as ATSDR will ask details about the child’s exposure, pregnancy, and breastfeeding history. For each participant, ATSDR will take body measures, collect blood and urine samples for chemical and biomarker analysis, and administer a questionnaire on exposures and medical history. For purposes of burden estimation, ATSDR assumes that 20 percent of parents will also enroll as adults; therefore, 420 parents will take the child questionnaire long form (n=140 per year), while 105 parents will take the short form to reduce burden (n=35 per year). Parents and children will also complete assessments of the child’s attention and behaviors. After eligibility screening, the annual time burden for participation in the study is 58 hours for adults and 208 hours for children and their parents. ATSDR will ask for permission to compare adults’ and children’s medical histories with their medical records. ATSDR will also ask for permission to check children’s school records to compare their behavioral assessment results. The annual time burden for medical record abstraction is estimated to be 183 hours. The annual time burden for school record abstraction is estimated to be 60 hours. The total annualized time burden requested is 1,199 hours. There is no cost to the respondents other than their time.
