Doctor stands by his actions at forum on hepatitis C study

I take great exception to the portrayal of my comments regarding a hepatitis C study (“A doctor’s pitch, a question of ethics,” Page A1, Sept. 25). I feel obliged to clarify important details and provide additional context.

In speaking at the public forum in Exeter, N.H., where a hospital technician has been accused of infecting patients, I repeatedly emphasized that I was referring to a study, not an approved treatment, and that promising safety and efficacy data from phase 1 and phase 2 trials of these drugs were publicly available.
