Comment:

This was an adequate proposal ranked near the midrange of the set. The title should identify this as a PATH proposal. The objectives are adequate, if somewhat vague. It is unclear just what this investigator has contributed to PATH. We could use an evaluation of his (and other participants) performance in PATH. The proposal is not well correlated with life cycle changes.
