2) provide NIAMS program staff contact information under “Where to Send

2) revise funds available and number of anticipated awards for FY2005.

The participating Institutes intend to commit approximately $1,500,000 in FY

immunomodulatory interventions for immune system mediated diseases clinical 
trials and of vaccine clinical trials for non-HIV/AIDS infectious diseases.

FY 2004 for immune mechanistic ancillary studies of vaccine clinical trials
