SUBJECT: NIH RESEARCH PROJECT-"TARGETED THERAPY FOR BURKITT LYMPHOMA
IN RESOURCE POOR SETTINGS"

REF: STATE 108008



1. On August 30, 2006, Embassy delivered to Secretary Everton F.
Lucero, Head of the Division of Science and Technology, Ministry of
Foreign Affairs (DCTEC/MFA), for review and approval, the National
Institutes of Health's (NIH) proposed award of a research project
titled "Targeted Theraphy for Burkitt Lymphoma in Resource Poor
Settings," (number CA121935-01). The site covered in this project
is under the direction of Dr. Jose Barreto and Dr. Iguaracyra
Araujo, from Federal University of Bahia, Salvador (Bahia), Brazil.



2. The Embassy sees no adverse foreign policy implications with
respect to this research project. We emphasize the importance of
complying with Brazilian laws on the export of data and biological
material.



3. We are providing this assessment of foreign policy implications
in advance of receiving approval from the Brazilian Government for
the proposed research to go forward, in order to assist NIH in
completing the domestic review process. Upon receipt of Brazilian
approval, the Embassy will notify NIH by cable.
