    I haven't read this yet. Hopefully I will get to, eventually.

    Anyway, thought I'd highlight it. Again, it's probably going to be of "minority interest". I find these sorts of papers of interest to see what is seen as bad practice in ME/CFS/similar trials.

    Interesting Dolphin - haven't read yet - but the Conclusion is pretty much as one suspects.

    this is a trial to show that trials of chronic illnesses don't work?
    Does anyone else think this is humorous?

    Wow! Reallllllllllly? To bad no one will really pay it much attention. Because studies have for the most part become 'a means to and end', A way to validate something regardless of flaws or validity and a way to cover or limit ones self from legal action.
