Part 2. Full Text of Announcement

Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

CADET Requirements

Current language:
Applications will be considered non-responsive to this FOA if any of the following are included in the application:
1.  Studies of combination products that include only elements of previously approved products (e.g., combining an approved drug with a device to deliver it as an aerosol).
2.  Studies for changing the indication (disease) for an approved product without a novel approach to management (e.g., using a drug approved for use in COPD patients in patients with asthma).
3.  Using an existing product in a sub-population of patients that is identified by an existing test (e.g., using Vitamin D in subjects who are Vitamin D deficient).
4.  Clinical trials.

Revised language:
Applications will be considered non-responsive to this FOA if any of the following are included in the application:
1.  Studies of combination products that include only elements of previously approved products (e.g., combining an approved drug with a device to deliver it as an aerosol).
2.  Studies for changing the indication (disease) for an approved product without a novel approach to management (e.g., using a drug approved for use in COPD patients in patients with asthma).
3.  Using an existing product in a sub-population of patients that is identified by an existing test (e.g., using Vitamin D in subjects who are Vitamin D deficient).
4.  Clinical trials.  CADET will not support the collection of new specimens or data from human subjects.  However, such specimens and data may be used if collected with a funding source other than CADET.

All other aspects of the FOA remain unchanged.
