Experimental drug may help slow mental decline in mild Alzheimer's

Taken separately, the studies on the drug - Eli Lilly & Co.'s solanezumab - missed their main goals of significantly slowing the mind-robbing disease or improving activities of daily living. But pooled results found 34 percent less mental decline in mild Alzheimer's patients compared to those on a fake treatment for 18 months.

Family history crucial in prostate cancer diagnosis

Prostate cancer sufferers who have a family history of the disease are more likely to have a relapse and more likely to die from the disease than are men without a family history, according to Dr. Patrick Kupelian of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Ohio. Men with such a history -- either a father or a brother with prostate cancer -- should undergo screening at an earlier age and, when a tumor is detected, should be treated more aggressively, he told an American Cancer Society briefing for reporters in Newport Beach, Calif., last week.
