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

is it Gitlen or Gitl*i*n ... if it's Gitlin, then a search reveals over 8,000 hits. Should be enough to cobble together his background at least.

I found this information on an old thread from 2006, it sounds like he is the same person you are inquiring about:

"As for Dr. Gitlin, I know I am in good hands now. See below his credentials.
Thanks for the comments and link.
