Description
This pilot study enrolled 9 GWI (Gulf War Illness) cases identified from the Department of Veterans Affairs GWI registry, and 11 sedentary control veterans who had not been deployed to the Persian Gulf and were matched to cases by sex, body mass index (BMI) and age.
We exposed GWI patients and matched controls to an exercise challenge to explore differences in immune cell function measured by classic immune assays and gene expression profiling.
Experiment types
transcription profiling by array, co-expression, disease state, in vivo, replicate, stimulus or stress, time series
