In this study, we are using microarray, a technique which measures expression levels of large numbers of genes, to help better understand and identify the likely causes of Gulf War illness. This method allows researchers to study different genes that affect how the body reacts to rest and exercise and how these differences affect the immune system, endocrine system and brain. Location: Miami VA Medical Center & University of Miami. We are recruiting male and female Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm veterans located in the Miami-Dade and Broward County areas.
