Abstract

Prostate tumor (PT) normally has an indolent course during the first 10 to 15 years. Tumor progression and its clinical management, in the elderly patients, is therefore becoming a social problem, and the feasibility of non-therapeutic approaches, such as the Wait & Watch (W&W) one, requires a better understanding of the tumor natural history. Our model aims at connecting physical, biological and statistical knowledge in order to validate empirical views and to propose to clinicians a simple and effective 'therapy-simulator', based on a large experimental sample, helping them in the difficult goal of personalizing patients' therapy.
