The government had pressed for the name, demanding to know: if Knox didn't get marijuana from his patients, but admits he smoked some after hours, where did he get it?

The case is primarily about the manner in which Knox prescribed OxyContin.

The case may go to the jury by the middle of next week.

SOT: STEVEN FERRIS, PhD, NYU MEDICAL CTR.

THERE WAS LESS DECLINE IN THE SYMPTOMS OF THE DISEASE-- WHEN PATIENTS TOOK MEMANTINE -- THAN WHEN PATIENTS TOOK PLACEBO-- A SUGAR PILL.

"Like other drugs for Alzheimer's disease memantine is not a cure--it can only slow the progress of the disease. But how it does that makes it different than anything else available."

But she says the studies never found a link between those health problems and the silicone implants.
