Dr. Nancy Klimas: «CBT does not cure (25% of) ME/CFS as claimed by Prof. White»

Hentet fra The Niceguidelines Blog og er en forklaring på hvorfor Dr. Nancy Klimas deltok i studiet om kognitiv terapi og ME:

«Dr White challenged me in a meeting a year ago saying nothing else had been published to deny this finding. SO now you have a publication, written by a psychologist and well regarded CBT expert to use when you want to argue that CBT helps people with this illness (as it does in every chronic disease model ever tested) but does not cure the illness.»

«You are going to see many papers this year from the different members of the team and taken separately you may fail to see the big picture. Don’t get sucked into too narrow a view. Wait and see… some amazing science is underway.

I had said that I had pressed Dr Antoni to get this study published in large part to rebut Dr White’s claim to cure 25% of ME/CFS patients with CBT.

Dr Antoni’s study shows that while CBT helps people with the illness as it does in every chronic disease model ever tested, it does not cure the illness.

kind of key first line – right?»

    Det og si at man kurerer noe man ikke vet hva er, blir litt merkelig.

    Sikkert litt overflødig info, men for de som ikke vet det, så er Dr White en del av Wessely school og den samme som Malterud inviterte som foredragsholder her i Norge for kort tid tilbake. Er ikke noe rar at de tror på cbt. Det er jo også slik at disse antagelig bruker kriterier som gir pasienter som cbt kan kurere, men som Dr Klimas påpeker, det kan ikke kurere ME. Det er jo dette Wyller og Malterud sikter til da de sier at cbt og get virker. At ME pasientene falle utenom, nevnes jo ikke.

    some amazing science is underway. Får virkelig tro det er noe som monner da!

    Synd da at Klimas er medforfatter for flere CBT studier. Det er derfor hun kommer med den uttalelsen hun gjør, fordi hun har blitt kritisert av pasientmiljøer i det siste. Hun er medforfatter av studier som viser at CBT hjelper for ME/CFS om ikke kurerer.

    Abstract
    Objective

    The present pilot study was designed to test the effects of a 12-week group-based cognitive behavioral stress management (CBSM) intervention on stress, quality of life, and symptoms in chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). We hypothesized that participants randomized to CBSM would report improvements in perceived stress, mood, quality of life, and CFS symptomatology from pre- to postintervention compared to those receiving a psychoeducational (PE) seminar control.MethodWe recruited 69 persons with a bona fide diagnosis of CFS and randomized 44 to CBSM and 25 to PE. Participants completed the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS), Profile of Mood States (POMS), Quality of Life Inventory (QOLI), and a Centers for Disease Control (CDC)-based CFS symptom checklist pre- and postintervention.ResultsRepeated measures analysis of variance revealed a significant Group×Time interaction for PSS, POMS–total mood disturbance (TMD), and QOLI scores, such that participants in CBSM evidenced greater improvements than those in PE. Participants in CBSM also reported decreases in severity of CFS symptoms vs. those in PE.

    ConclusionsResults suggest that CBSM is beneficial for managing distress, improving quality of life, and alleviating CFS symptom severity.
