Sex-Specific Differences in Plasma Lipid Profiles are Associated with GWI

Prior research indicates that chemical exposures from the Gulf War impact lipid homeostasis, as well as contribute to inflammatory and metabolic dysfunction. Having seen lipid sex-specific differences in animal models, researchers sought to examine human plasma lipids. Distinct differences were found in the lipid profiles of males versus females with GWI. 

Plasma Autoantibodies as a Diagnostic Tool for GWI

This study, featured on the cover of this issue of the Brain Sciences journal, puts forth groundbreaking implications for diagnosing Gulf War Illness (GWI). Adding to the frustration of GWI, is the fact that to date, there isn’t an objective tool for diagnosis. Findings of this research revealed significant elevation in Central Nervous System (CNS) […]
