CHANGES/ADDITIONS TO THE LISTINGS FOR NBC'S "MEDICAL INVESTIGATION"
(Fridays, 10:00PM-10:59PM ET)
10/02/04(9:00PM-10:00PM) :TEEN GIRLS GRIPPED BY DEADLY BRAIN DISEASE THAT REQUIRES CONNOR AND NATALIE TO TAKE RADICAL STEPS -- The NIH team hurtles toward St. Louis when four middle-school teens fall ill to encephalitis. Meanwhile, after Connor (Neal McDonough) and Natalie (Kelli Williams) conduct inconclusive tests, they shock the parents when they ask for a brain biopsy to detect if the problem resulted from a sexually transmitted disease. Eva (Anna Belknap) investigates a different path when a friend suggests that the girls were poisoned by a jealous rival -- even as new cases are reported. In addition, Natalie feels helpless to provide comfort for a long-suffering patient (guest star Shea Whigham) who is participating in a clinical trial. Christopher Gorham and Troy Winbush also star.
