UC San Diego Recruiting Gulf War Vets (Healthy & Ill) for 2 Studies

Anthony Hardie at the Gulf War Health & News site 91outcomes.com shared this call for study participants via the Co-Cure Listserv. “This is just as much about future combat operations as it is about the past,” he says.

Healthy and Ill 1991 Gulf War Veteran Research Study Participants Needed

Two medical research researchers at the University of California-San Diego are aiming to help veterans of the 1991 Gulf War suffering from Gulf War Illness by working to improve the scientific understanding of precisely what is going on in GWI patients' bodies.

One of the unrelated UCSD medical research projects ["Developing a Biomarker for Oxidative Damage in GWI" – target 40 participants, all ill] is led by Dr. Beatrice Golomb, whose groundbreaking study found CoQ10 to be the first treatment proven successful in reducing some of GWI's symptoms, including post-exertional fatigue.

She is also the author of a 1990s RAND Institute study on Pyridostigmine Bromide (PB) anti-nerve agent protective pills, which found PB to be associated with Gulf War Illness patients' adverse health outcomes.

The second project ["Developing a Biomarker for GWI with Respiratory Symptoms" – 30 ill and 30 healthy participants] is led by Dr. Bruce Zuraw, a widely published Professor of Medicine at the UCSD Medical School and Program Director of the UCSD Allergy and Immunology Fellowship Program. His research interests include allergic inflammation in humans.

Both medical research projects studies received their funding separately from the peer reviewed Gulf War Illness (GWI) Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP), an activity of the U.S. Department of Defense that receives its specific direction, peer review requirements, and funding on an annual basis from Congress.

Details of the two studies and contact information can be found here
