In order to simplify the information exchange within the medical diagnosis process, a collaborative software agents framework is presented. The human body systems (e.g. respiratory, cardiovascular) are embedded into distinct software agents. The holistic perspective is given by the all connected agents exchanging information. The purpose of the framework is(More)
The main contribution of this paper is the introduction of the new concept of membrane controller based on the structure and functioning of a deterministic numerical P system. The procedure for developing a membrane controller and for using it to control a mobile robot is explained and several test cases are given in which membrane controllers are used to(More)
A P system represents a distributed and parallel computing model in which basic data structures are multi-sets, strings or numerical variables. Numerical P systems have been introduced for possible applications in economics. A simulator for numerical P systems (SNUPS) has been designed, implemented and made available to the scientific community by the(More)
OBJECTIVE The Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE) is the gold standard cognitive test for screening delirium in cancer patients on opioids. But the MMSE is long and requires writing, reading and drawing from patients with various degrees of physical inability. Age and educational level affect the MMSE score. The Blessed Orientation-Memory-Concentration(More)
L’épuisement professionnel est fréquent chez les soignants des services de cancérologie. Cependant, aucune étude n’a évalué la fréquence, le profil et les causes en fonction de la catégorie socioprofessionnelle. Nous rapportons les résultats de cette étude chez 29 médecins, 102 infirmiers et 105 aides-soignants (AS) — agents des services hospitaliers (ASH)(More)
Vancomycin and aminoglycosides are widely used for fever in neutropenic patients. This combination of antibiotics has also been proposed for the treatment of Listeria monocytogenes bacteremia. We report a case of fatal listeriosis in a 33-year-old man during acute lymphoblastic leukemia induction therapy in a total protective environment despite him having(More)
The paper proposes an application framework to be used for medicine assisted diagnosis based on ontology and Bayesian Network (DBNO). There are two goals: (1) to separate the domain knowledge from the probabilistic information and (2) to create an intuitive user interface. The framework architecture has three layers: knowledge, uncertainty model and user(More)
UNLABELLED A P system represents a distributed and parallel bio-inspired computing model in which basic data structures are multi-sets or strings. Numerical P systems have been recently introduced and they use numerical variables and local programs (or evolution rules), usually in a deterministic way. They may find interesting applications in areas such as(More)
The paper presents a classification of the protein surface atom neighbourhoods from the hydrophobicity perspective. Hydrophobicity is the property which is considered around each surface atom. The actual hydrophobicity distribution on the atoms that form an atom's vicinity is replaced by an equivalent hydrophobicity density distribution, computed in a(More)
The paper presents an image-oriented description of artificial and biological nanostructured surfaces, with applicability to the functional characterization of atom neighborhoods at the surface of proteins. The property which is considered is the hydrophobicity around each surface atom. The actual hydrophobicity distribution on the atoms that form an atom's(More)
