I am a research coordinator at Mount Sinai Beth Israel located in midtown Manhattan.
I am writing to notify you of several research opportunities we are conducting for our Gulf War Veterans.
One study is a Vagus Nerve Stimulator study. We are looking for Gulf War Veterans (42 years old or older) who have widespread pain. This study involves a hand-held neuro-stimulator device that activates the nerve located in the neck, called the vagus. We are studying it's effect on reducing widespread pain and migraine headaches.
The other study is a brain mechanism and biomarker study. We are looking for Gulf War Veterans with GWI and also Gulf War Veterans who are healthy. Both populations require that they not be taking any brain-active medications (sedatives; pain meds; antidepressents) Those eligible will come in for a brain scan and blood work. PET scan will be done on half of the patients and healthy controls. The purpose of this study is to determine if altered brain chemistry might be the cause of the symptoms of their illness.
IF interested please contact us at the Pain and Fatigue Study Center at 212-844-6665

I am hoping to get a way for vets with gulf war illness to contact my r & d company. I have a patent on a new safe medicine for multiple chemical sensitivity, and since mcs appears to be part of the symptoms of gulf war illness, i would like to do a small pilot study to see if the new medicine would help in any way. I only need to see 10-30 people for the study. There is no cost and it's a very low stress study- involves a before and after questionnaire, and a one month trial of the solution. If there is any positive response, we would be able to fund a larger study. The study participants would need to be in the general vicinity of Atlanta for their convenience. If this site could help vets find us, we would appreciate the chance to see if we can help. Please let me know. Thank you.
