ABSTRACT: Exposure to the microbial growth in Water Damaged Buildings (WDB) can result in a chronic, multi-symptom, multisystem illness, which can last years, termed Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS). Symptoms of CIRS include but are not limited to fatigue, respiratory problems, including cough, interstitial lung disease and asthma-like conditions; executive cognitive deficits, neurologic deficits, pain and gastrointestinal distress among others. There are published treatment options for CIRS patients but relatively little is known about the genomic basis of the illness. One of the most striking features of CIRS is the absence of the anti-inflammatory neuropeptides vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH).
