Modelling dynamics of a localised immune response against a tumour
The next generation approach to cancer therapy envisions using stimulating a person’s immune system to destroy incipient or residual tumours well below the size of clinical detection. This approach requires us to understand the dynamics of a localised anti-cancer immune response in the small environment surrounding an undetectable tumour (approximately 1 cubic millimetre).
