National Institutes of Health

It has come to our attention that an announcement of interest in 'clinical
research in the area of neurodegenerative disorders' is being falsely associated
with the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  The announcement is being sent to
'Medical Providers on what appears to be official NIH letterhead.  The
announcement encourages the submission of confidential personal information from
individuals that could lead to a potential fraudulent or illegal use of the
information.  In spite of numerous references to NIH, this announcement, dated
'10 February 1998', is not a legitimate solicitation for NIH funds.  We caution
individuals not to provide sensitive information in response to this application. 
If you have received what appears to be an unusual request for an application
submission to NIH, please notify the Division of Grants Policy, NIH, at
301-435-0949 immediately.  We will revise this notice as we have more information
on the subject.
