European funding under framework 7 (FP7) for the virtual physiological human (VPH) project has been in place now for nearly 2 years. The VPH network of excellence (NoE) is helping in the development of common standards, open-source software, freely accessible data and model repositories, and various training and dissemination activities for the project. It(More)
Evidence has accumulated during the last decade to support the view that the pharmacokinetic behaviour of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) contributes not only decisively to their therapeutic effects but also to the type and incidence of their side effects. It has been shown that NSAIDs reach particularly high concentrations in those(More)
Biomedical science and its allied disciplines are entering a new era in which computational methods and technologies are poised to play a prevalent role in supporting collaborative investigation of the human body. Within Europe, this has its focus in the virtual physiological human (VPH), which is an evolving entity that has emerged from the EuroPhysiome(More)
European funding under Framework 7 (FP7) for the virtual physiological human (VPH) project has been in place now for 5 years. The VPH Network of Excellence (NoE) has been set up to help develop common standards, open source software, freely accessible data and model repositories, and various training and dissemination activities for the project. It is also(More)
The Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) is a major European e-Science initiative intended to support the development of patient-specific computer models and their application in personalized and predictive healthcare. The VPH Network of Excellence (VPH-NoE) project is tasked with facilitating interaction between the various VPH projects and addressing issues(More)
The virtual physiological human (VPH) initiative encompasses a wide range of activities, including structural and functional imaging, data mining, knowledge discovery tool and database development, biomedical modelling, simulation and visualization. The VPH community is developing from a multitude of relatively focused, but disparate, research endeavours(More)
OBJECTIVE The importance of hemodynamics in the etiopathogenesis of intracranial aneurysms (IAs) is widely accepted. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is being used increasingly for hemodynamic predictions. However, alogn with the continuing development and validation of these tools, it is imperative to collect the opinion of the clinicians. METHODS A(More)
BACKGROUND Virtual patients are increasingly common tools used in health care education to foster learning of clinical reasoning skills. One potential way to expand their functionality is to augment virtual patients' interactivity by enriching them with computational models of physiological and pathological processes. OBJECTIVE The primary goal of this(More)
Since most non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) contain only one obvious ionisable group at physiological pH levels then they may be easily identified as having either acidic or basic character. Basic NSAIDs are simply non-acidic NSAIDs capable of accepting a proton within the physiological pH range. Within this range, however, a few NSAIDs(More)
