The present work deals with the software based on the PhasTraM model [1] for oncogenic hyperplasia, the first stage of formation of any solid tumor. The work generalizes the related results of [2]-[6] and discusses application of the software for decision support in radionuclide therapy. The software capabilities to allow for combinations of various causes of oncogeny are emphasized. The causes comprise inflammation, immune dysfunction, and chronic psychological stress. The immune dysfunction is represented with hypogammaglobulenimia expressed in terms of the concentration of the immunoglobulin-G molecules. The level of chronic pychological stress is described with the concentration of the interleukin-6 molecules. The work considers how application of the software can support decisions on the specific radionuclide-therapy setting depending on the tissue-, organ-, and patient-specific data. This is illustrated by a number of numerical-simulation results, also the ones which include the effects of common and fractionation-based radionuclide-therapy modalities. A proper attention is paid to how specifically the input data can be prepared by prospective users of the software, i.e. the specialists who apply radionuclide therapy. The work also formulates a few directions for future research in connection with the features of the everyday work of the prospective users. REFERENCES: [1] E. Mamontov, K. Psiuk-Maksymowicz, A.
