  Clinical Trial 

National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS)

intends to reissue a Master Agreement Announcement/Request for

Proposals (MAA/RFP) entitled: "Master Agreement for the Clinical

Evaluation of Investigational Antiepileptic Drugs," with the intent of

seeking new sources to add to the current pool of qualified Master

Agreement (MA) holders.  In May 1991, the NINDS issued MAA/RFP No.

NIH-NINDS-91-10 to renew its MA Program for performance of future

clinical evaluation studies of investigational antiepileptic drugs

through January 1997.  Approximately 39 Master Agreement awards were

made as a result of that solicitation.  In an effort to continually

enlarge the pool of qualified holders under this program, the NINDS,

each year, reissues the MAA/RFP.  Current MA holders are not required

to compete at this time.  MAs will be awarded to those sources

determined to be technically capable of performing clinical evaluations

of investigational antiepileptic drugs in tolerability and preliminary

efficacy studies, controlled efficacy and safety trials, or both, in

patients with epilepsy.  Only MA holders will be eligible to compete

for future Master Agreements Orders that fund the actual clinical

evaluation of specific drugs as they become available for testing.

This is not an MAA/RFP.  MAA/RFP No. NIH-NINDS-92-17 will be issued on

or about July 31, 1992, with a tentative closing date set for receipt

of proposals on October 15, 1992.

The award of any MA under this RFP will be valid through January 31,

1997.  The NINDS expects to add a number of new sources to its current

pool of MA holders as a result of this MAA/RFP.

To receive a copy of MAA/RFP No. NIH-NINDS-92-17,  submit a written

request to the following address, and supply two self-addressed mailing
