Abstract

In this study, the poroelastic model is used to predict stress and interstitial pressure in the tumor and surrounding host tissue. Simulations predict changes in the stress and pressure of the tissue toward elevated values with increasing age and expansion of the solid tumor. The resulting spatial distribution is consistent with pressure values observed in experimental tumors with elevated values in the tumor center that decrease greatly at the tumor/host tissue interface.
