The purpose of this research effort is to conduct a randomized controlled trial RCT Nasal Irrigation for Chronic Rhinosinusitis and Fatigue in Patients with Gulf War Illness which will evaluate the effects of two different types of nasal irrigation solution compared to a control group for sinus and fatigue symptoms in adults with GWI. The primary activities conducted during year one of the project pertain to the approval process for human subjects research activities. This requires protocol submission to the UW Health Sciences Institutional Review Board HS IRB and the Madison Veteran Affairs Research and Development VA RD Committee. In order to proceed with human subjects research, both the UW IRB and the VA RD require completion of separate, yet concurrent, research review and approval processes. The project was granted final VA approval on 71612 following by UW HS IRB approval on 72312.
