National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK),
Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition (DDDN), has a requirement for the
continuation of the Liver Tissue Procurement and Distribution System (LTPADS) as
a network of three to six geographically distributed Tissue Collection Centers. 
This project is designed to procure, preserve and deliver liver tissue and cells
from a variety of end-stage liver diseases to researchers.  These tissue and
cells would otherwise be discarded or be obtainable to most researchers who are
not a part of a liver transplant center.  The LTPADS is also designed to make
normal liver tissue and cells available for research when such livers are found
to be unsuitable for liver transplantation. The Request for Proposals, RFP No.
NIH-NIDDK-98-1, will be issued on or about November 21, 1997 with a closing date
of on or about January 21, 1998.  Requests for the RFP must be in writing,
addressed to the Contracting Officer cited above, and must cite the referenced
RFP number.  All responsible sources may submit a proposal that will be
considered by the agency.  The Government is not committed to award a contract
pursuant to this announcement.
