  Sudden Infant Death Syndrome 

  Sleep Disorders 

National Institute of Child Health and Human Development

The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD)

is conducting a study of sleep positions in Sudden Infant Death

Syndrome (SIDS) cases.  Research is to be conducted into current

infant sleep practices so that NICHD may evaluate (1) whether and to

what extent sleep practices change as a result of the American

Academy of Pediatrics recommendation, which recommended that normal

term infants be placed on their side or back to sleep; (2) to what

extent changes in sleep practice may have positive or adverse effects

on infant mortality in the United States; and (3) what are the

relative risks for those infants sleeping in various positions to

succumb to SIDS.

To answer these research questions, the NICHD plans to issue a Broad

Agency Announcement (BAA) for proposals that address one or more of

the research questions proposed.  This BAA for an infant's sleep

position study and SIDS risks is a new acquisition.  The issuance of

the BAA will be on or about November 19, 1993 and proposals are due

by 4:00 p.m. (Local Time), January 21, 1994.


Organizations desiring a copy of the above BAA may send their written

request to:

Mrs. Lynn Salo

All requests must cite the BAA No. NICHD-CRMC-94-01 and include two

self-addressed mailing labels.  All sources that consider themselves

qualified are encouraged to submit a proposal.  This advertisement

does not commit the government to award a contract.
