National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

The Enteric Diseases Branch of the Division of Microbiology and

Infectious Diseases, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious

Diseases (NIAID), has a requirement for a group to perform independent

and collaborative work on hepatitis viruses in model systems such as

the woodchuck.  The specific focus is on understanding infection and

chronic disease, identifying parameters that determine the outcome of

infection, i.e., recovery and chronicity, and developing/evaluating

preventions and therapies.  This contract is to perform the molecular

and viral/host assays for both the independent and collaborative work

in the woodchuck animal model for hepatitis B and D.  The Division of

Intramural Research has a requirement for a contractor to determine the

presence and quantities of markers of human hepatitis viruses on

samples generated by separate activities using primarily commercially

available kits.  The DMID part of this effort is Part I, and the DIR

Portion is Part II.

RFP No. NIAID-DMID-94-04 is now available.  Responses are due by 4:30

pm on April 26, 1993.  It is estimated that one contract for Parts I

and II together or two separate contracts for Parts I and II separately

will be awarded incrementally for a period of five years.  Due to

increased emphasis in vaccine programs, the Government reserves the

right to make more than one award for Part I.  Any responsible offeror

may submit a proposal that will be considered by the Government.
