UT Southwestern Responds to VA Announcement

DALLAS, Aug. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- UT Southwestern has issued the following statement in regard to today's news release by the Veterans Administration:

We regret the VA's unilateral decision to not renew the contract supporting vital research focused on veterans suffering from Gulf War syndrome being carried out by UT Southwestern investigators and their collaborators elsewhere.

We strongly disagree with the VA's characterization of the facts related to our Gulf War research contract. We were surprised to learn of their action, especially since we have been working diligently and in good faith with the VA to resolve all areas of disagreement.

We remain committed to performing research that improves the condition of those who have served our country.
