Department of Defense Comprehensive Clinical Evaluation Program (CCEP)


The Comprehensive Clinical Evaluation Program (CCEP), created by the Department of Defense (DOD) in 1994, provides information collected from participating sites across the country on Gulf War veterans and their families. The database contains data on self-selected individuals. During the evaluations, demographic information, self-reported exposures and syndromes, diagnostic codes, and clinical and laboratory data are collected. The database is available to qualified science researchers.
