Healthy and Ill 1991 Gulf War Veteran Research Study Participants Needed

(91outcomes.com) - 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 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 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.
