Patients’ reanalysis sinks PACE’s “recovery” claims (#MEaction piece)

This contrasts starkly with the recovery rate of 22% in the therapy groups that was published by the study authors in the journal Psychological Medicine in 2013. In that paper, patients were classed as having recovered from their disability even if they became more disabled during the trial. The Lancet published a similar analysis in an earlier paper. Both journals have for years refused to correct the analyses.

I want to know if they can be forced to do a correction in the journals and appologise to our patient group? Isnt a correction in the journals the right thing to be done? or is things like this just left?
