Recent Studies Utilizing a Mouse Model of GWI

Mouse or rat models of Gulf War Illness are commonly used prior to human experimentation. Abstracts of some recent studies utilizing a mouse model of GWI are linked below. Prolonged Antibiotic Use Worsens Neuroinflammation and Increases the Risk of Neurodegeneration via Elevated Expression of Systemic IL-6 in Gulf War Illness Symptom Persistence Murine Model Nexinhib […]

Chemical Weapons Exposure & mTBI: Imaging in Veterans with GWI

High-order diffusion MRI has previously been shown the ability discriminate between different stages of neuroinflammatory signaling. Applying an innovative method, known as Neurite density imaging, (to high-order difussion MRI), researchers confirmed its ability to accurately distinguish between veterans with and without GWI. Looking specifically at the effects of chemical/biological weapons exposures and mild traumatic brain […]
