    This is all that is currently available, presumably the PubMed page will be updated once publication occurs.

    Given the published papers on this subject, i would not hold out much for much sense prevailing

    Only 4 studies included from a 10 year period. I wonder if PACE was one of them. Though it does specify physiotherapy, and I think the GET was done by OT's ??? And if their measure of success is 'fatigue severity' that suggests open label trials with subjective outcome measures.
    My conclusion - more junk.

    The two sentences highlighted seem to entirely contradict each other?? 24D9C62D-3FC2-47C0-9F41-42D0826577A2.jpeg
