    Am I getting confused here. The PACE trial reported "CAN" not "MAY" when added to Specialist Medical Care. Seems a world of difference - the former being prescribed and the latter - could try out only. And Specialist Medical Care to which these may be "added to" is generally absent in the UK until such time as medicine here catches up with the wealth of international research and findings to better understand the underlying pathologies. The wording is most important the "CAN" in the hands of the ignorant (most here) could be forced on - as has been the history here. "MAY" is optional. (This is in response to ir Peter Spencer's letter).
