# DYNAMICS OF THE TUMOR—IMMUNE SYSTEM COMPETITION—THE EFFECT OF TIME DELAY

@article{Galach2003DYNAMICSOT, title={DYNAMICS OF THE TUMOR—IMMUNE SYSTEM COMPETITION—THE EFFECT OF TIME DELAY}, author={Magda Galach}, journal={International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science}, year={2003}, volume={13}, pages={395-406} }

The model analyzed in this paper is based on the model set forth by V.A. Kuznetsov and M.A. Taylor, which describes a competition between the tumor and immune cells. Kuznetsov and Taylor assumed that tumor-immune interactions can be described by a Michaelis-Menten function. In the present paper a simplified version of the Kuznetsov-Taylor model (where immune reactions are described by a bilinear term) is studied. On the other hand, the effect of time delay is taken into account in order to… Expand

Dynamics of a model of tumor-immune interaction with time delay and noise

- Biology

It is found that delay and noise can both induce the transition from low tumor burden equilibrium to high tumor equilibrium and suggest that the elimination of cancer depends on the basal level of the immune system rather than on its response speed to tumor growth. Expand
