Gulf War Serum Management Committee
Veterans' Affairs (part of the Defence Portfolio)
The Committee comprises representatives of ex-service organisations which represent the interests of participant groups in the Gulf War Study. The Gulf War Health Study examined the long term effects of service in the Gulf War, particularly physical exposure. Serum samples were taken from participants. These samples are stored under contract with DVA. This committee examines the management of this storage and advises the MRCC on any research proposals to use the remaining serum.
