Receipt Date for Letter of Interest: July 12, 2002

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) wishes to 
expedite development of two classes of currently licensed and marketed drugs for 
treatment of potential agents of bioterrorism: (1) Antiviral drugs for treatment
of viral hemorrhagic fevers, and (2) Antibiotics for treatment of anthrax, 
pneumonic plague, and tularemia.

NIAID is interested in receiving letters of interest regarding screening, 
development, and future licensure from organizations that have candidate drugs 
and the needed research capabilities. Interested organizations should submit a 
letter of interest that contains a detailed description of their potential 
development plans, and their R&D capabilities and interest. The letter of 
interest along with any supporting documentation shall not exceed 10 pages. 
Letters of interest will be kept confidential and will help in determining the 
need for an RFP to support further development, testing, and licensure of these 
products, and in assembling a potential source list for distribution if an RFP
is issued.
