In the more recent article, we present the follow-up results of the second assessment 30 months later. Again, the patients with concomitant OCD showed a higher degree of pathology. However, analysis of variance for repeated measures revealed significant improvement over time in both groups, with and without concomitant OCD, and there were no significant group-by-time interactions. In our opinion, the results suggest a certain degree of independence between the improvement over time and the comorbidity of the eating disorder and OCD. Concomitant OCD does not indicate a significantly poorer prognosis for patients with eating disorders. Nevertheless, we share the opinion of Dr. Cumella that a study with a larger N value would be desirable.
