Mufudza2012 - Estrogen effect on the dynamics of breast cancer


ABSTRACT: Mufudza2012 - Estrogen effect on the dynamics of breast cancer This deterministic model shows the dynamics of breast cancer with immune response. The effects of estrogen are incorporated to study its effects as a risk factor for the disease.  This model is described in the article: Assessing the effects of estrogen on the dynamics of breast cancer. Mufudza C, Sorofa W, Chiyaka ET. Comput Math Methods Med 2012; 2012: 473572 Abstract: Worldwide, breast cancer has become the second most common cancer in women. The disease has currently been named the most deadly cancer in women but little is known on what causes the disease. We present the effects of estrogen as a risk factor on the dynamics of breast cancer. We develop a deterministic mathematical model showing general dynamics of breast cancer with immune response. This is a four-population model that includes tumor cells, host cells, immune cells, and estrogen. The effects of estrogen are then incorporated in the model. The results show that the presence of extra estrogen increases the risk of developing breast cancer. This model is hosted on BioModels Database and identified by: BIOMD0000000642.
