Abstract

Current analytic methodologies allow the extraction, even from small tumor masses, of extensive information on the biologic characteristics of malignant lesions, such as tumor aggressivity, metastatic potential, drug resistance, and host interactions. Clinical practice now offers a wide range of therapeutic strategies. Information technological advances offer the opportunity to refer to very large data bases of patient anamnestic data, response to treatment and clinical outcome. There is a need to formulate therapy and prognosis for each individual case. Case based reasoning is a knowledge based methodology where the outcome for complex situations can be predicted by referring to a large data base of cases of known outcomes. The preliminary data obtained from this study suggest that case based reasoning may offer a promising approach to individual targeted prognosis
