Date:9/1/2009

KANSAS CITY, Mo., Sept. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Troops fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan return home with medical challenges often unique to members of the military. From traumatic brain injury to post-traumatic stress disorder to suicide, veterans face some of the most pressing conditions confronting the health care system today.

Research to address these needs is underway, and the work of hundreds of investigators engaged in the effort is being showcased September 1-3 at the Military Health Research Forum in Kansas City. The Forum is a conference designed to bring together investigators funded by the Department of Defense Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs as well as invited speakers, consumers, members of the military health care system and DOD policy makers to facilitate the exchange of information and the development of new collaborations, and learn about research advancements funded through the host programs.

Areas of research include Gulf War Illness, psychological health, neuroprotection, rehabilitation, substance abuse, family issues and many more.

Among the highlighted abstracts:

  • Innovative treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder. Depending on the conflict in which they served, 10 to 30 percent of soldiers who have spent time in war zones experience the debilitating and life altering symptoms of PTSD. Topics examined include employing virtual environments and novel medicines to help military personnel diagnosed with PTSD and or/other co-morbidities, and the use of psychiatric service dogs to help troops manage the symptoms of PTSD.
