    I wonder have there been unpublished trials of CBT, GET and other non-pharmacological interventions in ME/CFS? The PACE Trial's outcomes appear worse on average than trials that have been published before.

    There is certainly plenty of unpublished clinical data. Not so sure about unpublished trials (though some specific data is almost certainly withheld) as funders tend to get a bit angsty about that...

    True now. But I want whether much external funding is required from some of the early trials of CBT and GET with small numbers of patients.
