Cover Story (view full-size image): Gulf War veterans suffer from a chronic multi-symptom disorder called Gulf War Illness (GWI) that has been associated with central nervous system (CNS) dysfunction. Symptoms of GWI overlap with other chronic conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS). To differentiate these disorders, we examined blood-based CNS autoantibody biomarkers among the illnesses. We found that veterans with GWI had much higher levels of autoantibodies to 9 out of 10 CNS proteins in their blood showing that GWI is a distinct disorder with more CNS involvement than ME/CFS or IBS.
