Gulf War and Health:
Volume 9: Treatment for Chronic Multisymptom Illness
A significant portion of the soldiers deployed to conflicts in the Persian Gulf region have experienced troubling symptoms that were formerly dubbed Gulf War Syndrome and now termed Chronic Multisymptom Illness. Requested by Congress in P.L. 111-275, this new report from the Institute of Medicine evaluates the scientific and medical literature regarding best treatments for this spectrum of conditions among Gulf War veterans.
This series of briefings was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on January 23, 2013 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
