    I'm interested in this for a slightly obscure reason - the talk of compliance with an aerobic exercise intervention

    I'm interested in compliance in graded activity/exercise in ME/CFS trials which often isn't assessed or only minimally assessed e.g. compliance can be achieved by simply turning up for meetings with therapist.

    Don't have it, I'm afraid.

    But have seen other interesting stuff in previous FM papers e.g. the trial below, which was found to have poor compliance when they looked at the activity logs. After they reassigned people based on the activity logs,

    Me neither, although I've a feeling that a certain percentage of people in FMS trials have ME/CFS. This is interesting for various reasons e.g. if I was a biomedical researcher, one place to look for ideas for things that might occur in ME/CFS would be abnormalities found in FMS. Not saying they all will apply but I'd say some might.
