“Cancer encompasses various diseases associated with loss of control in the mechanisms that regulate the cell numbers in a multicellular organism. It is usually caused by malfunction(s) in the cellular signaling pathways. Malfunctions occur in different ways and at different locations in a pathway. Consequently, therapy design should first identify the location and type of malfunction and then arrive at a suitable drug combination. We first model the interactions between different pathway components using Boolean logic gates. The input-output behavior of the faulty circuit is used to carry out fault classification and arrive at the subsequent choice of the appropriate combination therapy.”
