OBJECTIVE To apply a fuzzy logic expert control system for the treatment of postoperative pain in a clinical setting. MATERIAL AND METHODS A system was designed consisting of a perfusion pump guided by a fuzzy logic computer interface to regulate the perfusion of alfentanil in accordance with the patient's pain response. The system was also equipped with(More)
Peptide receptor radionuclide therapy (PRRT) using radiolabeled somatostatin analogues has shown encouraging results in various somatostatin receptor positive tumors. Partial remission rates up to 30% have been documented as well as significant improvements in quality of life and survival. This treatment takes advantage of the high specific binding of the(More)
We describe a system for controlling postoperative pain, a phenomenon that is difficult to treat by conventional control methods due to interpatient variability, interferences, non-linearity and the lack of a plausible, well-defined mathematical model. The system consists of two phases. In Phase 1 a closed-loop fuzzy controller implementing a suitable(More)
Chemical modifications of the biotin carrier in pretargeted avidin–biotin radionuclide therapy may be of paramount importance for tuning the amount of the radioactivity delivered to cancer cells by labelled biotins. We report here the synthesis of a collection of new synthetic DOTA-constructs bearing two (+)-biotin molecules (bis-biotins), designed for the(More)
The 20% of male 5-6 month-old Wistar rats SM prove to be natural killers. A four-month long insulation of "surely non-killer" rats has not allowed to notice a mouse-killing behaviour in any animal. The total bilateral removal of olfactory bulbs in "non-killer rats" causes a "mouse-killing behaviour" in all the animal 24 hours after the operation, but with a(More)
An investigation was made of the effect of thermic stress on the somatic rage reaction and on rapid circling turns in cats awake and free to move in a behavioural cage. An increase in room temperature had a two-phase effect on the excitability of the nervous structures stimulated that is able to evoke the somatic rage reaction and rapid circling turns. The(More)
We examined first the behavior of a single animal (Macacus Rhesus), partially free to move on a Brady chair, before and after direct electrical stimulation of the amygdala and the hippocampus; then the social behavior of two animals, completely free to move in a large behavioral cage, before and after stimulation, by radio, of the amygdala.
