DrKoop.com ailing. MillenniumHealth has bailed out of DrKoop.com. The Va.-based medical equipment dealer and online news service was in negotiations with the beleaguered
Web site, but talks broke down; a statement was released saying simply that the two companies could not agree on terms. A dark horse bidder, Undertherapy.com, may still try to
strike a deal with the Web site named after the former surgeon general. Assistant managing editor Stephanie Fuqua remains the main PR contact. (Fuqua, 512/583-5667)
