In the charts below, each vertical blue line represents a PACE Trial participant’s BASELINE (before treatment) CFQ score.
The dark-red dot vertically aligned shows that same participant’s OUTCOME at 52 WEEKS.
A LOWER score means LESS fatigue. An effective treatment for fatigue would have the majority of red dots scoring 12 or lower. It should also have many times more dots at this level than the Control Group (SMC).
The chart below shows the corresponding CFQ Baseline (yellow) CFQ Outcome (green) and SF36PF (red dots) for each participant in the CBT group. There is little correlation between CFQ baseline and outcome or with the SF36PF. The data is so random that no reliable or consistent influence could produce these results. This is a NULL treatment-effect.
