Separate poverty guideline figures for Alaska and Hawaii reflect Office of Economic Opportunity administrative practice beginning in the 1966–1970 period. (Note that the Census Bureau poverty thresholds—the version of the poverty measure used for statistical purposes—have never had separate figures for Alaska and Hawaii.) The poverty guidelines are not defined for Puerto Rico or other outlying jurisdictions. In cases in which a Federal program using the poverty guidelines serves any of those jurisdictions, the Federal office that administers the program is generally responsible for deciding whether to use the contiguous-states-and-DC guidelines for those jurisdictions or to follow some other procedure. Due to confusing legislative language dating back to 1972, the poverty guidelines sometimes have been mistakenly referred to as the ‘‘OMB’’ (Office of Management and Budget) poverty guidelines or poverty line. In fact, OMB has never issued the guidelines; the guidelines are issued each year by the Department of Health and Human Services. The poverty guidelines may be formally referenced as ‘‘the poverty guidelines updated VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:20 Jan 16, 2020 Jkt 250001 periodically in the Federal Register by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services under the authority of 42 U.S.C. 9902(2).’’ Some Federal programs use a percentage multiple of the guidelines (for example, 125 percent or 185 percent of the guidelines), as noted in relevant authorizing legislation or program regulations. Non-Federal organizations that use the poverty guidelines under their own authority in non-federallyfunded activities also may choose to use a percentage multiple of the guidelines. The poverty guidelines do not make a distinction between farm and non-farm families, or between aged and non-aged units. (Only the Census Bureau poverty thresholds have separate figures for aged and non-aged one-person and twoperson units.) This notice does not provide definitions of such terms as ‘‘income’’ or ‘‘family’’ as there is considerable variation of these terms among programs that use the poverty guidelines. The legislation or regulations governing each program define these terms and determine how the program applies the poverty guidelines. In cases where legislation or regulations do not establish these definitions, the entity that administers or funds the program is responsible to define such terms as ‘‘income’’ and ‘‘family.’’ Therefore questions such as net or gross income, counted or excluded income, or household size should be directed to the entity that administers or funds the program.

Intellectual Property • U.S. Patent 9,481,866—issued November 1, 2016, entitled ‘‘Methods of Producing T Cell Populations Enriched for Stable Regulatory TCells’’ [HHS Reference No. E–279– 2011/0–US–02] • U.S. Divisional Application No.15/ 284,840—filed October 4, 2016, entitled ‘‘Methods of Producing T Cell Populations Enriched for Stable Regulatory T-Cells’. [HHS Reference No. E–279–2011/0–US–03] The patent rights in these inventions have been assigned to the government of the United States of America. The prospective exclusive license territory will be the United States and the field of use will be limited to: ‘‘Human cell-based therapeutics for the treatment of Hemophilia A in patients that have inhibitory Factor VIII antibodies.’’ The technology is directed to a method for producing or growing cell populations that are enriched for stable, highly suppressive regulatory T cells (Tregs). Tregs are critical in regulating immune system processes that maintain tolerance to self-antigens and prevent immune mediated diseases. The method takes a population of cells comprising stable, regulatory T cells and enriched for specific CD markers, cultures these cells in the presence of interleukin-2, an anti-CD3 antibody, an anti-CD28 antibody, and oligodeoxynucleotides of specified length having a phosphorothioate backbone, and yields the expansion of the initial population of regulatory T-cells. The expanded Tregs may then be used for the treatment of immune-mediated diseases. This notice is made in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR part 404.
