Mathematical modeling of erythropoietin therapy in uremic anemia. Does it improve cost-effectiveness?

By  and Bellazzi RSiviero C and Bellazzi R


This paper describes the improvements in r-HuEPO therapy of uremic patients that may be obtained by using a mathematical model of patient response together with a delivery control strategy derived from the theory of industrial control. A mathematical model of r-HuEPO action is presented, and its applicability to dialytic patients is shown. Moreover, a new statistical technique for identifying the parameters of the mathematical model analyzing a patient population is summarized, and a control strategy for r-HuEPO delivery in uremic patients based on a Fuzzy Set Controller is introduced. Some results obtained from simulation, are presented
