Drkoop.com said yesterday that it received $20 million in financing that saved the health Web site from going under.


Prime Ventures, JF Shea Ventures, Cramer-Rosenthal-McGlynn and RMC Capital ponied up the $20 million. Drkoop said Monday in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it had nearly run out of the $2 million in cash that the company received in June.


The new investors received preferred stock in Drkoop.
