Today's Globe: UMass shuffle, vitamins and prostate cancer, menopause drug suit
As part of a plan to streamline the University of Massachusetts to be unveiled tomorrow, UMass-Boston chancellor Michael Collins (left), who previously headed the Caritas Christi Health Care System, will move to the medical school in Worcester, where he will oversee research and commercial development throughout the system. Collins also will serve as the medical school's interim chancellor, succeeding Aaron Lazare, who stepped down in March because of a heart arrhythmia.
Men who pop too many vitamins in the hope of improving their health may in fact be raising their risk of the deadliest forms of prostate cancer, especially men with a family history of the disease, researchers said yesterday.
A Pfizer Inc. unit failed to properly warn a New Jersey woman about the cancer risk of its hormone-replacement drug Provera and should pay $1.5 million in damages, jurors said in the first trial over the menopause treatment.
