In its 2010 report, Update of Health Effects of Serving in the Gulf War, the Institute of
Medicine (IOM) noted that the path forward for research should include continued health
surveillance of Gulf War Veterans over time. The IOM panel recommended longitudinal
evaluation of mortality, cancer, psychiatric outcomes and neurologic disorders in
deployed and non-deployed Gulf War Era Veterans including, in particular, both
amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and multiple sclerosis. Veterans should also be followed
over time to assess rates of diseases of aging, such as cardiovascular and
neurodegenerative diseases [56].
