Research Finds Gulf War Pesticide Associated with Immune Response in Gulf War Illness

 A permethrin metabolite is associated with immune responses in Gulf War Illness

(Sarasota, FL - Roskamp Institute) - Gulf War Illness remains difficult to diagnose and treat since exposure to Gulf War chemicals happened nearly 30 years ago.  Many studies now provide strong support that pesticide exposure during the Gulf War is one of the key factors in causing GWI. 

This recent work at the Roskamp Institute shows that the pesticides used during the 1991 Gulf War can cause the body to negatively react to its own proteins that play important roles in supporting bodily functions.
