Quiescence: A mechanism for escaping the effects of drug on cell populations
We point out that a simple and generic strategy in order to lower the risk for extinction consists in developing a dormant stage in which the organism is unable to multiply but may die. The dormant organism is protected ...
A model for stem cell population dynamics with regulated maturation delay
We develop a structured population model for the maturation process of stem cells in the form of a state-dependent delay differential equation. Moreover, results on existence, uniqueness and positivity of solutions as well ...
