CDMRP-Funded Study Testing 9 Treatments for Gulf War Illness
(91outcomes.com) - A new study funded by the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) is testing nine different treatments in veterans with Gulf War Illness.
The study, Treating Gulf War Illness with Novel Anti-Inflammatories: A Screening of Botanical Microglia Modulators, is being led by Dr. Jarred Younger of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. During the course of the study, investigators will test the treatment viability of each of the nine plant-based treatments -- three in each veteran participant.
A video about the new study is below, along with a link on how to participate and more information about the study.
