Myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), Gulf War illness (GWI), as well as other fatigue-related illnesses are poorly understood. Individuals can experience severe, long-lasting fatigue, which cannot be properly explained through extensive diagnostic procedures. Our research partnership with the CDC, Miami VA, NIH, other universities and private institutions furthers the understanding in the medical community as to how these illnesses affect their patients which can be used to develop a better understanding for improved health care.
Your participation will be contributing to the knowledge and understanding of these illnesses. With your help, people with ME/CFS, GWI, and other fatiguing illnesses may be better treated in the future. We thank you in advance for your participation and continued support.
Our priority is the safety of our research participants and clinical research staff. The institute will proceed to monitor research operations and maintain close communications with research participants that are currently enrolled in active research studies. We will continue to recruit interested participants in studies in order to continue our efforts in advancing knowledge and care for people with complex neuro-inflammatory illnesses. Thank you for your continued support and research participation.
The Gulf War Illness Clinical Trials and Interventions Center (GWICTIC) is conducting several clinical trials and interventions aimed at understanding Gulf War Illness, also known as 'chronic multisymptom illness'. These clinical trials are funded by the Department of Defense (DoD) and will be conducted at NSU's Institute for Neuro-Immune Medicine, Boston University, Bronx VAMC, New Jersey War Related Illness and Injury Study Center (WRIISC), and the California U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs War Related Illness and Injury Study Center (WRIISC).
