Reproductive and developmental outcomes are understudied in veterans, especially among veterans of the Gulf War (GW). Results from our preliminary study demonstrate that veterans of the GW experienced reproductive and developmental outcomes at potentially high rates, and exploratory analyses suggest pesticide exposure as associated with higher odds of adverse reproductive outcomes.
For this study, female veterans were surveyed in order to assess the rates of GWI within this specific population. The six domains of the Kansas case definition for GWI, were used to identify correlations between neurotoxicant exposures and health outcomes. Women veterans reporting exposure to oil well fires, PB pills, pesticide treatments and insect baits […]
Experts in the field of Gulf War Illness (GWI) sought to fill the gap in the body of research specific to women veterans, which lead to the development of the Gulf War Women’s Cohort (GWWC). Existing research suggests that GWI is more common in female GW veterans than their male counterparts, however, studies have yet […]
