In compliance with the requirement of Section 3506(c) (2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, for opportunity for public comment on proposed data collection projects, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will publish periodic summaries of proposed projects to be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval.
Proposed Collection: Title: Resource for the Collection and Evaluation of Human Tissues and Cells From Donors With an Epidemiology Profile (NCI). Type of Information Collection Request: New. Need and Use of Information Collection: Under the auspices of three NCI IRB-approved protocols and instruments, the Laboratory of Human Carcinogenesis conducts case-control studies to investigate the relations between biomarkers, the environment, and human cancer. Human subjects recruited from the general population are needed as controls (Population Controls) for bio-specimens and personal histories (social, occupational and health) that serve as references for the significance of the frequency and prevalence of bio-markers found in cancer patients and thought to be important in the development, progression, and/or response to treatment of the malignant growths in cancer patients. The questionnaires will be used to obtain the personal histories to compare to the life styles and exposures and the biospecimens will serve as controls for the assay results obtained from cancer patients. The collection of information and specimens from the cancer cases received NIH Clinical Exemption (Request #2009-09-002) on October 28, 2009. Frequency of Response: Once. Affected Public: Adult and senior members of the licensed driver population in Baltimore, Maryland and eleven nearby counties, including the Eastern Shore. Type of Respondents: Responders will be English speaking, male and female, Caucasian, African-American and Asian. The total annual reporting burden is estimated to be 692 (see table below). There are no Capital Costs, Operating Costs, and/or Maintenance Costs to report.

|Refusal Questionnaire Form (Attachment 21)||225||1||2/60 (0.03)||8|
Request for Comments: Written comments and/or suggestions from the public and affected agencies should address one or more of the following points: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the function of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.Start Further Info
