SUBJECT: NIH RESEARCH PROJECT ENTITLED "TARGETING OF EBV LATENCY IN
BURKITT'S LYMPHOMA"

REF: STATE 78664

1. On August 18, 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 "Targeting of EBV Latency in Burkitt's Lymphoma," (number
CA112217-01A2). The site covered in this project is under the
direction of Dr. Jose Barreto and Dr. Helen Marie Barbosa, 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.
