Abstract

At present, there is lack of modeling in the area of drug distribution in cancer tumors. Developing better models is important because of their potential as quantitative tools in clinical oncology. A model is introduced that determine the tumor response as a function of its age and also the point at which convection no longer occurs in the majority of the tumor. The model could conceivably be used to determine when this type of therapy is no longer effective, thus saving medical resources and unnecessary chemotherapy side effects for patients.
