Abstract:

The primary emphasis of the third year of the grant has been continued recruitment of study participants and data analysis. We have completed an additional 75 acquisitions during the third year of the grant. In addition to the two manuscripts published during the last reporting period Georgopoulos et al. 2017 EBioMedicine 10, 3217-3225 James et al. 2017 EBioMedicine 26, 126-131, we have another manuscript in preparation that demonstrates the association between GWI symptom severity and various laboratory measures of immune system functioning and inflammation. We requested and were awarded a no cost extension to continue recruitment to meet our goal of 200 participants. To date, we have completed 173 of 200 planned acquisitions.
