The challenge of modelling cancer presents a major opportunity to improve our ability to reduce mortality from malignant neoplasms, improve treatments and meet the demands associated with the individualization of care needs. This is the central motivation behind the ContraCancrum project. By developing integrated multi-scale cancer models, ContraCancrum is(More)
A method for quickly designing and implementing HW/SW systems is described. The method is based on the model of a flexible target architecture consisting of a dedicated controller that interacts with one or more processing elements. From a StatemateTM specification, the dedicated controller is extracted, and mapped onto a XilinxTM FPGA. The software part of(More)
This paper presents a brief outline of the notion and the system of oncosimulator in conjunction with a high level description of the basics of its core multiscale model simulating clinical tumor response to treatment. The exemplary case of lung cancer preoperatively treated with a combination of chemotherapeutic agents is considered. The core oncosimulator(More)
The occlusional performance of sole endoluminal stenting of intracranial aneurysms is controversially discussed in the literature. Simulation of blood flow has been studied to shed light on possible causal attributions. The outcome, however, largely depends on the numerical method and various free parameters. The present study is therefore conducted to find(More)
In this paper, we describe a system to map hardwaresoftware systems specified with statechart models on an ASIP architecture based on FPGAs. The architecture consists of a reusable CPU core with enhancements to execute the behavior of statecharts correctly. Our codesign system generates an application-specific hardware control block, an application-specific(More)
We describe a Codesign approach based on a parallel and scalable ASIP architecture, which is suitable for the implementation of reactive systems. The specification language of our approach is extended statecharts. Our ASIP architecture is scalable with respect to the number of processing elements as well as parameters such as bus widths and register file(More)
The 5-year survival of non-small cell lung cancer patients can be as low as 1% in advanced stages. For patients with resectable disease, the successful choice of preoperative chemotherapy is critical to eliminate micrometastasis and improve operability. In silico experimentations can suggest the optimal treatment protocol for each patient based on their own(More)
The so-called prophylactic ovariectomy, i.e. the removal of macroscopically nonpathological ovaries during laparotomy or vaginal hysterectomy, does not always prevent ovarian cancer. A case of a 76-year-old woman with a Müllerian tumor is reported, and the literature will be discussed.
