Gulf War Illness (GWI) is a complex disorder affecting nervous, endocrine and immune regulation. Accordingly, we propose that GWI presents with a distinct pattern of immune signaling. To explore this we compared interaction patterns linking immune markers and their evolution during exercise. Blood was collected from 9 GWI and 11 control subjects prior to a Graded eXercise Test (GXT) (t₀), at peak effort (t₁) and 4 h post-exercise (t₂). Salivary cortisol and plasma, serum or culture supernatants… CONTINUE READING
