In Reply We appreciate the attention that the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) and Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) gave to conflicts of interest (COIs) as they sought to strike the right balance between experience and potential COIs among prospective hepatitis C virus (HCV) guideline panel members. The judgment of the 2 societies was that following the Institute of Medicine (IOM) standards would not allow them to produce a guideline adequately informed by clinical experts in the field. This approach raises 2 important issues.
