Not intended to replace clinical judgment and is to be used to support a clinical assessment. The second IOM review initiated in July again focused on the DoD protocol, this time regarding the diagnosis of difficult-to-diagnose and ill- defined conditions, stress and psychiatric disorders, and health complaints that might be related to low-level exposure to nerve agents.

    As with all plans to address concerns, they will be best formulated when they include all the stakeholders — VA, Congress and importantly the veterans themselves through the Veterans Service Organizations. Gray matter is made up of neurons, the most important type of brain cell. Their study found that several commonly used blood tests that indicate inflammation tended to yield different results when given to Veterans who reported symptoms consistent with CMI, and to those who did not.
