The triplex vaccine effects in mammary carcinoma: a nonlinear model in tune with SimTriplex. (English) Zbl 1401.92139
Summary: This paper deals with the mathematical modeling of the mammary carcinoma-immune system competition elicited by an external stimulus represented by three different protocols of the triplex vaccine [C. De Giovanni et al., “Immunoprevention of HER-2/neu transgenic mammary carcinoma through an interleukin 12-engineered allogeneic cell vaccine”, Cancer Research 64, 4001–4009 (2004)]. The presented model is composed of nonlinear ordinary differential equations based on parameters and cell populations. A qualitative analysis of the asymptotic behavior of the model and numerical simulations are able to depict preclinical experiments on transgenic mice in tune with the SimTriplex model [F. Pappalardo et al., “Modelling and simulation of cancer immunoprevention vaccine”, Bioinformatics 21, 2891–2897 (2005)]. The results are of great interest both in the applied and theoretical sciences.
