From: Impaired immune function in Gulf War Illness

  Demographic data Controls GWI
Number of subjects 11 9
Race African American 4 2
  Hispanic 4 6
  White 3 1
Mean Age (years) (Range) 43.8 (33 – 52) 42.8 (34 – 51)
Mean BMI (kg/m2) (Range) 26.7 (18.8 – 31.0) 29.1 (24.2 – 31.5)
Mean Peak VO2 max 1 (ml/kg/min) (± SE) 28.05 (± 1.59) 25.05 (± 0.72)
Mean % Predicted (ml/kg/min) (± SE) 78.36 (± 3.41)* 67.8 (± 1.75)*
  1. * Statistical difference measured by a Student t-Test with equal variance p = 0.015
  2. 1 Peak VO2 max is the increase in "maximal" oxygen uptake measured during an incremental maximal exercise protocol.
