Breakthrough in Gulf War Illnesses From Exposure to Chemical Toxins

At least a quarter of the 700,000 soldiers who fought in the 1991 Gulf War suffer from a debilitating disease called Gulf War Illness. Symptoms include severe fatigue, stomach issues and body aches.

New research is aimed at bringing these patients some relief. Dr. Nancy Klimas, one of the leading Gulf War Illness researchers in the country, and her team at the Institute of Neuro-Immune Medicine at NSU’s Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine are working to find a treatment for Gulf War Illness and these debilitating symptoms.
