  1. Thank you for your continued research!
    Will a portion or the $3.2 million award received by the Dept. of Defense be allocated towards researching the other cause of GWI, the Anthrax vaccine?
    Report above stated “evidence for claim is in equipoise, claim granted”

    Also, “…examiner determined that the heterogeneity of veteran’s symptoms made difficult to prove casual relationship to the anthrax vaccine.”

    Why did some Veterans have adverse reactions to the Anthrax vaccine? Have those markers been identified? What treatments are available?
    Immunotherapy, Human immunoglobulin G (IgG) have been researched. Have other Veteran’s used this treatment?
    How can we get our Veteran’s the treatment they need now?
    GWI Vets, and their families, need additional research so we can start their healing.
    I look forward to reviewing your findings and information on treatment.

    Thank you,

    1. I can answer your questions Nunez That’s right -we are still going through it. The gas-lighting by VA attending, (MD, PA, NP, whatever …) students and fellows has been torture for some of us. I was seen at STLVHA DERM for 15 years for autoimmune disease wtf.
      Try this
      Amanda Nunez & Dr Kim Sullivan :
      1) Test auto immune response
      look for
      Sjogren, scleroderma
