In 1998, the IOM began a series of congressionally-mandated studies to examine the scientific and medical literature on the potential health effects of chemical and biological agents related to the Gulf War. The first study reviewed the scientific literature on depleted uranium, chemical warfare agents (sarin and cyclosarin), pyridostigmine bromide, and vaccines (anthrax and botulinum toxoid) and resulted in the report, Gulf War and Health Volume I: Depleted Uranium, Pyridostigimine Bromide, Sarin, Vaccines.
