Title Genome Instability: A Common Link in Gulf War Illness Patients.
Publication Date Oct 2012
Media Count 8p
Personal Author H. Heng S. Chowdhury
Abstract The objective of this proposal is to determine whether there is a link between genome instability (reflected as elevated frequencies of NCCAs) and GWI. Patient samples (blood) are being directly analyzed using molecular cytogenetic analyses and gene expression studies. The central hypothesis of this proposal is that patients with GWI will display high levels of genome instability, particularly when challenged by various toxic agents, which can be stochastically linked to various molecular pathways and is the potential basis for diverse clinical symptoms that are seen in GWI.
