We describe a new knowledge acquisition tool that enabled us to develop a dialog system recommending software design patterns by asking critical questions. This assistance system is based on interviews with experts. For the interviews we adopted the repertory grid method and integrated formal concept analysis. The repertory grid method stimulates the(More)
Orthotopic bladder cancer xenografts are essential for testing novel therapies and molecular manipulations of cell lines in vivo. Current xenografts rely on tumor cell inoculation by intravesical instillation or direct injection into the bladder wall. Instillation is limited by the lack of cell lines that are tumorigenic when delivered in this manner. The(More)
Optimal animal models of muscle invasive bladder cancer (MIBC) are necessary to overcome the current lack of novel targeted therapies for this malignancy. Here we report on the establishment and characterization of patient-derived primary xenografts (PDX). Patient tumors were grafted under the renal capsule of mice and subsequently transplanted over(More)
Orthotopic bladder cancer xenografts are the gold standard to study molecular cellular manipulations and new therapeutic agents in vivo. Suitable cell lines are inoculated either by intravesical instillation (model of nonmuscle invasive growth) or intramural injection into the bladder wall (model of invasive growth). Both procedures are complex and highly(More)
Intermittent hyperammonemic encephalopathy after ureterosigmoidostomy is a rare, but if unrecognized, potentially lethal condition. Ureterosigmoidostomy was performed in a male patient with bladder extrophy. After 35 years, he developed hyperammonemic encephalopathy. Diagnostic procedures did not reveal hepatic nor metabolic disorders. Despite(More)
