PACE trial criticism[edit | edit source]

In 2017, David Marks edited the Journal of Health Psychology, Special Issue: The PACE Trial covering the controversial PACE trial.[4] Before publication, Marks received complaints and intimidation attempting to block the issue's publication by wrongly claiming it had not been peer reviewed.[5][6][7]―while principle PACE trial investigators Peter White, Trudie Chalder and Michael Sharpe also requested that their own editorial due to be published not be peer reviewed and not receive replies.[8]

In 2018, he was one of over a hundred people to sign the third Open letter to the Lancet requesting an independent review of the PACE trial.[9]

There was a last ditch attempt to block publication of the special issue by a powerful but unknown PACE trial advocate… A weaselly coward suggested papers weren’t properly peer reviewed and that the special issue should therefore not be published.
