Abstract

In this manuscript, we shall apply the tools and methods from optimal control to analyze various minimally parameterized models that describe the dynamics of populations of cancer cells and elements of the tumor microenvironment under different anticancer therapies. In spite of their simplicity, the analysis of these models that capture the essence of the underlying biology sheds light on more general scenarios and, in many cases, leads to conclusions that confirm experimental studies and clinical data. We focus on four applications: optimal control applied to compartmental models, brain tumors, drug resistance and antiangiogenic treatment.
