Abstract: We combine a refinement of a recent theorem of A. N. Degtev with a result of our own, in order to derive a general theorem about regressive sets which has the following

Corollary. If $ A$ is any point-decomposable $ \pi _1^0$ set then $ A$ has an infinite $ \pi _1^0$ subset $ B$ such that $ B$ has ``highly'' dense-simple complement and, moreover, all infinite $ \pi _1^0$ subsets of $ B$ are effectively decomposable in a strong sense (namely, they are all retraceable).
