Overview

On February 28 through March 2, 1999, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other agencies of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) brought together scientists, clinicians, veterans, veterans’ service organizations, Congressional staff, and other interested parties to discuss and make recommendations regarding the direction of future research on undiagnosed illnesses among Gulf War veterans and their links with multiple chemical and environmental exposures. The format for the conference included plenary sessions, concurrent workgroups, and a veterans’ forum. The plenary sessions were meant to provide background information and to stimulate dialog on research questions. The plenary sessions included an overview of research findings regarding the health impact of the Gulf War, a panel discussion of the experience of Gulf War veterans, a series of presentations on the possible health outcomes of low-level chemical exposures focusing on nervous system, immune system, and pulmonary system outcomes, a series of panel discussions on research and clinical findings regarding multiple chemical sensitivity among Gulf War veterans and civilian populations, a series of presentations on possible mechanisms of action of chemical exposures, and a panel discussion on methodological considerations in studying the health impact of chemical exposures during the Gulf War.

This report summarizes the outcome of each of the four workgroup sessions. Chapters 2 - 5 present the recommendations as developed by the workgroups. Although the workgroups were asked to focus on research recommendations, some recommendations reflect clinical care, administrative, or policy issues. No attempt was made to filter non-research recommendations from this report. Chapter 6 provides a discussion of the workgroup deliberations and attempts to place the recommendations in the context of current Gulf War research activities.
