The National Toxicology Program (NTP) at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) in conjunction with the NIH Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) is planning a workshop to identify research needs based on consideration of the state of the science related to the safe use of high intakes of folic acid. The NTP and the ODS invite comments on an approach document, ''Identifying Research Needs for Assessing Safe Use of High Intakes of Folic Acid,'' for review of the pertinent literature. The notice and document are available on the NTP Folic Acid Request for Information (RFI) Web site (http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/go/38143). Information gathered through this request will be used in prioritizing topics for the state of the science workshop. Response date is May 28, 2013.
The announcement was published in the Federal Register (Vol. 78, No. 66; April 5, 2013, p. 20672-20673): Literature Review Approach "Identifying Research Needs for Assessing Safe Use of High Intakes of Folic Acid"; Request for Information and Comments.
