Modelling the cell cycle and cell movement in multicellular tumour spheroids.
This paper analyses a recent mathematical model of avascular tumour spheroid growth which accounts for both cell cycle dynamics and chemotactic driven cell movement. The model considers cells to exist in one of two compartments: proliferating and quiescent, as well as accounting for necrosis and apoptosis. One particular focus of this paper is the behaviour created when proliferating and quiescent cells have different chemotactic responses to an extracellular nutrient supply. Two very differe...Expand abstract
