sorry I haven't heard of him but just wondering why your husband needs to do a trial? There are two new drugs coming out soon that may help your husband more then the trial drug? They are called Telaprevir & Boceprevir.
If you read through the old posts you can get a lot of information about these new drugs and other things that will help with Hepatitis C.
Best of luck
