Description

In January 2015, the Institute of Medicine conducted a study to determine the incidence and prevalence, as well as the risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS) and other neurologic diseases as a result of service in the 1990-1991 Persian Gulf and post 9/11 Global Operations theaters. The other neurologic diseases to be considered include: Parkinson’s disease, and brain cancers, as well as central nervous system abnormalities that are difficult to precisely diagnose. This report presents the committee’s data collection and findings.
