If a tumor cell grows with rate m, and dies with rate n (m>n), their population number is P, after tme t, how can set up a mathematical fomuler for growth ? If i also have data from 100 patients, is it useful ?
If you have lots of data, you can statistically estimate mi - ni (= net growth rate for patient i) through the regression equation:HallsofIvy said:... I'm not sure what data you have but if you have P(t) for at least 3 different times for each patient, you can use the data to determine C, m, and n for each patient. ...
