Gulf War Illness Clinical Trials

The following is a list of current clinical trials for Gulf War Illness (GWI):

NEW DoD-FUNDED GRANT: Identify Gulf Veterans with Gulf War Illness. Because of the overlap between Gulf War Illness and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Dr. Natelson and his colleagues at the Weill Cornell School of Medicine have extended their studies to better understand GWI. The team will identify Gulf Veterans with GWI as well as healthy Gulf Veterans for similar studies of brain chemistry as in the first study. These studies will consist of brain imaging and the collection of urine and blood samples. If you are a Gulf Veteran or know a Gulf Veteran who might be interested in participating in this research, email This email address is being protected from spambots.

NEW FEDERALLY FUNDED GRANT: Study and Develop Treatment for Gulf War Illness. Congress has directed the Department of Defense to spend up to $20,000,000 per year to study and develop treatments for Gulf War Illness, the medical condition developed by many veterans of the 1990-1991 Gulf War. Under the auspices of this program, we will begin a trial of vagus nerve stimulation to treat the body-wide pain common among many Gulf Veterans. The device used stimulates the vagus nerve when hand-activated and placed on the skin in the neck over the nerve; so stimulation can be done without the need for surgical placement of the device. To participate, Veterans must have served in the 1990-1991 conflict and have the diagnosis of Gulf War Illness including the complaint of body-wide pain.

NEW FEDERALLY FUNDED GRANT: Identify Gulf Veterans with Gulf War Illness for Studies of Brain Dysfunction as a Cause of Their Illness. Because of the overlap between Gulf War Illness and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Dr. Natelson and his colleagues at the Weil Cornell School of Medicine have extended their studies to better understand GWI. The team will identify Gulf Veterans with GWI as well as healthy Gulf Veterans for similar studies of brain chemistry as in the first study. These studies will consist of brain imaging and the collection of urine and blood samples. If you are a Gulf Veteran or know a Gulf Veteran who might be interested in participating in this research, call 212-844-6665
