报告摘要:Combining well formulated mathematical models with clinical data, we show that cycling patients on and off intermittent androgen suppression (IAS) treatment not only alleviates most serious side effects but also may postpone the development of the inevitable treatment resistance for some prostate cancer patients. Our models are adapted from proven ecological models that are based on ecological stoichiometric principle which in a nutshell state that the most limiting resource strongly regulate growth, death and evolutionary processes. With our clinical data validated models, clinicians may identify patients that are appropriate for the treatment and estimate the maximum length of treatment for a given patient.
