Mitochondrial and Nuclear Genetics Gulf War Study


We are conducting a research study to examine how genes for (and related to) chemical detoxification of Gulf-exposures relate to Gulf War illness risk, severity, and progression.

We invite Gulf War Veterans who were deployed to the Middle East during the 1990-1991 conflict with chronic health symptoms, healthy Gulf War Veterans, and Healthy others (Veteran and Non-Veteran) to participate in the study.

The participation involves one visit to our clinic at our research facility in La Jolla, CA OR at a Quest lab in your area and will last about 1.5-2.5 hours.

The study visit will include:

1)    Assessments such as blood pressure, temperature, heart rate, height, and weight.

2)    Blood draw; saliva & urine sample.

3)    Health Questionnaires.

You will be compensated $25 for your time and travel and can receive your genetic profile through 23andMe at no cost.

If you might be interested in participating in this study, please call Janis Ritchie at (858) 558-4950, x203 or Emily Nguyen at (858) 558-4950, x206.
