    A researcher has asked me: does anyone know of any ME/CFS trials that have used a measure of post-exertional malaise as an outcome measure apart from the PACE Trial*

    *Aside: which published a yes/no measure (they had used a Likert scale but published a yes/no result)

    I said they are interested in "trials"; another term is "interventional studies". So studies that measured post-exertional symptoms before and after a treatment of any sort, most likely a questionnaire.

    The Rituximab study I found I'm guessing isn't going to be suitable as it is only part of the measure.
