Letter of Intent Receipt Date:  March 31, 1992

Application Receipt Date:  May 7, 1992

The notice of availability for this Request for Applications was

published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts on January 24,

1992, Vol. 21, No. 3, Part II of II.  The section, RESEARCH OBJECTIVES,

contained an error in the third paragraph.  This entire paragraph,

shown below, indicates that "symptoms specific to psychiatric disorders

are not included in the scope of this RFA."

The theoretical basis for the planned feasibility/pilot studies must be

clearly explicated for the behavioral, psychosocial, and physiological

strategies described in the exploratory center grant application.  The

symptom(s) for exploration is to be selected by the applicants and may

include, but is not limited to, the high priority symptoms of pain,

fatigue, dyspnea, nausea, vomiting, cognitive impairment, altered sleep

or rest patterns, and depression or anxiety secondary to a physical

illness.  However, symptoms specific to psychiatric disorders are not

included in the scope of this RFA.  One or more symptoms may be

selected by each applicants depending on the scientific expertise

available at the applicant institution or clinical setting and the

theoretical basis chosen to explicate the research.  An

interdisciplinary approach must be utilized.  Although

feasibility/pilot studies addressing only pharmacological interventions

are not acceptable, the inclusion of pharmacological strategies in

combination with non pharmacologic strategies is appropriate for a

multimodal management approach.
