Short description
<notes xmlns="http://www.sbml.org/sbml/level2/version4"> <body xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"> <p>Its a mathematical model presenting the interaction between a growing tumor and immune system. Model involves tumor cells, dendritic cell, helper Tcells, regulatory Tcells, effector cells and certain cytokines (e.g. TGFbeta, IL10, IL2 ) produced by these cells. It represent a dynamic regulation of tumor production/killing by different immune cells and cytokines. Model is derived from Tessi-Roberton 2012</p> </body> </notes>

  • Understanding the complex dynamics between the tumor cells and the host immune system will be key to improved therapeutic strategies against cancer. We propose an ODE-based mathematical model of both the tumor and immune system and how they respond to inactivation of the driving oncogene. Our model supports experimental results showing that cellular senescence of tumor cells is dependent on CD4+ T helper cells, leading to relapse of tumors in immunocompromised hosts.
