Another aspect that may be behind a smoke screen is that of fully informed consent. Presumably the participants in the PACE trial gave this prior to participation. But if the parameters for recovery and/or improvement were changed after the data was collected, wouldn’t this render previous informed consent null and void and, therefore, negate the trial results a priori?
