    I am confused by this quote:
    "The majority of enrolled subjects also described moderate to severe post-exertional malaise as part of their symptoms profile."
    I can't tell if all subjects had PEM but only some had moderate to severe PEM
    or
    if not subjects had PEM.

    I am also unclear if functional status referred to here:
    "...this investigation did not formally measure the treatment’s effect on the subject’s functional status."
    is cognitive function or physical or both.

    Is this an objective measure? I haven't seen it mentioned in other studies.

    This stuff is basically just a stimulant, isn't it?
