Gulf War Illness Researcher Georgetown University-Seeking Gulf War Veterans Healthy and Ill

Dr Barinauck and his staff are exceptional!  Dr Barinauck site is full of the information on his current studies.  He has three gulf war illness studies:

1.  Gulf War Illness and Exercise

2.  Gulf War Illness Treatment Study ie Carnosine

3.  Gulf War Illness and CNDP1

Please he needs healthy and ill participants.  Please click on the link provided on top and read on each study.

The writer has been one of his subjects and quite a few of the leading gulf war veterans and advocates have  participated in the number three study listed above.  You are reimbursed in an amount that covers airfare to and from DC.  Georgetown Hospital is a not for profit hospital and the staff at this hospital is world recognized.  You are admitted to the hospital, it is clean and it runs smoothly.  It is not like a VA hospital.  The staff is so attentive and caring and wants to hear more about gulf war veterans.  Dr Barinauck is an expert in Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia and he shares with you and helps you -as you dream of a doctor that you want as your physician!  They are not just researchers!

And yes that study involved a spinal tap and even the old nurse was not too eager. I did have to reschedule but I said got to do this to get more answers, help, and treatment.  Ladies and Gentleman, I have to tell you I did not have pain during this research.  They use a very small small needle for inserting the tube that is visualized downstairs in nuclear radiology yes you can see it on the screen.  They then take maybe 5 small vials of spinal fluid, they show them to you.  They then withdraw the inserting needle-  you are done.  There was a skin patch of local anesthesia and then more local anesthesia inserted prior to the stick and it was no pain!

I think we have encourage other fellow veterans maybe 50 to go and I spoke to many( the majority I think)  and they too would reccommend participating!  You are asked to do pain surveys so frequently you would not believe.  Hey, I just had mild pressure and they were immediately wanting me to take the oral pain med afterwards because these guys want no pain for you!!!!  You also have blood and urine testing and lots of lab tests that you get all those results mailed to you as soon as they are back from lab.  You are admitted and stay in hospital until 24 hrs after the spinal tap.

The actual research lab work will be sealed until study is completed and published (this study is similar to one done for civilian Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME patients which was published)  That study and his results led to the gulf war veteran community asking him to present to the RAC GWI.

So as the old DS Nurse I would encourage you to help in this effort!  It passes my review with flying colors.  So click on the link and read.  Call them(202-687-8231), email them (gwiresearch@georgetown.edu) and talk to them.  And seriously consider doing this in an effort to help us all get some answers!

  1. Contacted the study and have been offered the exercise study. Need to get a clearance from my cardiologist because of unknown heart problems. If I m allowed I do look forward to attending the study in late April. Thak you for posting the article.

  2. I would love to participate in these studies, but due to my medical history, I am excluded in every single study. For those that can participate, please do not hesitate, this is the only way researchers can find a possible solution to the agony with suffer daily!!!

    • Vickie did you call them??? thanks for your encouraging comment.
      also help spread the word to all others

  3. I have been in contact with Georgetown University Medical Center and will be participating in all three studies!

    They are great so far and I am looking forward to the visit later this month. Thank you for your article, it is refreshing to know they are responsive to our needs!

    • Thank you sam and hope you keep in touch during your visit I think you have my email and phone no
      glad that you are going to do this
      When are you scheduled!

        • you might also try to get a referral from your VA doctors to the WRIIS in DC….maybe you could schedule that after the Georgetown study.

          • Hi Denise,

            The Georgetown UMC Study was great, what a relief to find people who are taking steps to confirm our ills.

            I recommend this study to all veterans who qualify to participate.

            I also went to WRIISC-DC for their evaluation in November 2009 and had wonderful service and attention.

            If there are any other studies, I am more than willing to do what is necessary to move along the process for better understanding of Gulf War Illness.

            I am actually attempting to recruit healthy and non-healthy veterans for the Georgetown University Medical Center Study…that is how impressed I have been during that process.

            Thank you as always for keeping us informed…

            Samuel
