Mathematical modelling of cell population dynamics in the colonic crypt with application to colorectal cancer

Abstract:

Colorectal cancer has the third highest mortality and incidence rates of all cancers worldwide, but the prognosis for long-term survival is good if diagnosed early. It is a well-characterised disease, and is initiated in colonic crypts which line the colon wall. The aim of this thesis is to use mathematical modelling to describe the heavily regulated cell renewal cycle in the crypt to determine the key features of the system kinetics, and help to explain the initiation of tumourigenesis. The...
