Purpose

This Notice issued by the National Institute on Drug Abuse is to clarify the Funding Opportunity Description of PAR-12-239 "Clinical Development of Minimally-Invasive Bioassays to Support Outpatient Clinical Trials of Therapeutics for Substance Use Disorders (R01)". 

Section I. Funding Opportunity Description - Original

Clinical trials evaluating the efficacy of medications to treat Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) are limited by two major issues:  a) the inability to accurately and quantitatively monitor the frequency and level of a subject’s illicit drug exposure and b) uncertainty in assessing the level of a subject’s adherence to the trial medication regimen.

Section I. Funding Opportunity Description - Revised

Clinical trials evaluating the efficacy of medications to treat Substance Use Disorders (SUDs) are limited by two major issues:  a) the inability to accurately and quantitatively monitor the frequency and level of a subject’s illicit drug exposure and b) uncertainty in assessing the level of a subject’s adherence to the trial medication regimen. Applications submitted to this opportunity should focus around an outpatient clinical trial, with or without preclinical system development studies. ¬†Applications not seeking to test a minimally invasive bioassay system in a clinical trial are not appropriate for this opportunity.¬†

All other aspects of this FOA remain the same.
