The Division of Cancer Treatment (DCT), National Cancer Institute

(NCI), intends to enter into negotiations with the Japanese

Foundation for Cancer Research to provide information pertaining to

cancer treatment research in Japan.  The major objectives of this

project are:  (1) Monitor the advances in preclinical and clinical

cancer therapy research in Japan; (2) provide preliminary results of

all clinical trials and screening evaluations underway at the Cancer

Chemotherapy Center of Japan involving investigational drugs

sponsored by the NCI; (3) manage specific projects within the

treatment area of the U.S. Japan Cooperative Cancer Research Program,

including scientist exchanges and the organization of meetings; (4)

attend all major scientific meetings in Japan related to contract

objectives and report to the DCT the results presented; (5) provide

to the DCT all titles of abstracts related to cancer therapy

presented at Japanese scientific meetings (These titles are to be

collated and translated into English.   Titles of all scientific

reports in this field that are published in Japan are to be

translated and provided to DCT); and (6) establish a bilateral

exchange of postdoctoral fellows between the U.S. and Japan.  This

initiative would fund up to 10 exchange fellowships throughtout U.S.

or Japan for periods of two to three years.  The Japanese Foundation

proposes to cost share 50 percent of the fellows stipend and the

other 50 percent will derive from this contract.

Although this is a sole source contract with the Japanese Foundation

for Cancer Research, the NCI will consider other proposals that may

offer an advantage to the Government.
