Br J Psychiatry. 2004 Feb;184:142-6. Powell P, Bentall RP, Nye FJ, Edwards RH. Department of Psychology, University of Manchester, UK. BACKGROUND: An earlier trial demonstrated good outcomes after 1 year for patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) who received an educational intervention designed to encourage graded activity. Aims: To determine 2-year outcomes for the same treated patients and the response to treatment of patients formerly in the control condition. METHOD: Patients in the treatment groups (n=114) were followed up at 2 years; 32 patients from the control group were offered the intervention after 1 year and were assessed 1 year later. Assessments were the self-rated measures used in the original trial. RESULTS: At 2 years 63 of the treated patients (55%) no longer fulfilled trial criteria for CFS compared with 64 patients (56%) at 1 year. Fourteen of 30 crossover patients (47%) achieved a good outcome at 1 year and seven (23%) no longer fulfilled criteria for CFS. CONCLUSIONS: Benefits of the intervention were maintained at 2 years. Delaying treatment is associated with reduced efficacy and required more intensive therapy. PMID: 14754826 [PubMed - in process]
