Limitations and Caveats
Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
The study was stopped prematurely for efforts to be focused on assisting the Office of Group Benefits (OGB) in translating a policy that would allow for physician certification in order to offer participants the intensive treatment.
