The usability of advanced control methods of physiological processes have been several times demonstrated. Advanced (i.e. MPC) control approaches cope with practical difficulties of limited measurability of the state variables, model-imprecisions, significant inter-patient variability of the available model's parameters and limitations in the sampling frequency of the variables that at least in principle can be directly measured. However, the lack of the necessary information prevents the use of state estimators. Compensation of the effects of the presence of model-imprecisions needs the application of robust control methods or adaptive techniques. The Proportional-Derivative (PD) control completed with Robust Fixed Point Transformation (RFPT)-based adaptive control was invented for tackling such difficulties. The current paper investigates the applicability of this technique in case of angiogenic growth of tumors using different scenarios of tumor volume measurement. Conclusions are drawn on the basis of numerical simulations.
