Title:On the use of a chemotherapeutic agent when resistance to it threatens the patient
Seminar:Theoretical Biology Seminar
Speaker:Elsa Hansen, PSU CIDD
Abstract:
Pathogen resistance to drug treatment severely limits our ability to successfully treat patients. Results from clinical, experimental and theoretical studies have been mixed and the best way to manage resistance is still vigorously debated. At the center of this debate is whether aggressive drug-treatment is best or if more moderate approaches might be better. In this talk I will present a mathematical framework for defining and evaluating the performance of aggressive and moderate treatment strategies. Specific conditions will be given which clearly delineate when aggressive and moderate treatment should be used.
