A two-compartment model of cancer cells population dynamics proposed by Gyllenberg and Webb includes transition rates between proliferating and quiescent cells as non-specified functions of the total population, N. We define the net inter-compartmental transition rate function: Phi(N). We assume that the total cell population follows the Gompertz growth model, as it is most often empirically found and derive Phi(N). The Gyllenberg-Webb transition functions are shown to be characteristically… Expand
Quiescence as an explanation of Gompertzian tumor growth revisited.
TLDR
If an avascular tumor grows according to the three-compartment model, then as the death rate of quiescent cells decreases to zero, the percentage of proliferative cells also approaches to zero and the size of the tumor will increase. Expand
Modelling the balance between quiescence and cell death in normal and tumour cell populations.
TLDR
The model indicates that tumour evolution in vivo is a sequence of steady-states, each characterised by particular death and quiescent rate functions, and suggests that a key passage of carcinogenesis is a loss of the communication between quiescence, death and cell cycle machineries, causing a defect in their precise, cell cycle dependent relationship.

Nutrient limitations as an explanation of Gompertzian tumor growth
An intuitive and influential two-compartment model of cancer cell growth proposed by Gyllenberg and Webb in 1989 [18] with transition rates between proliferating and quiescent cells reproduces someExpand
TOWARDS A STOCHASTIC TWO-COMPARTMENT MODEL IN TUMOR GROWTH
TLDR
A stochastic model of tumor growth incorporating several key elements of the growth processes is presented and the effect of a therapy is seen as a moderation term of the Growth rate of the tumor cells. Expand
A Microenvironment Based Model of Antimitotic Therapy of Gompertzian Tumor Growth
TLDR
For a constant total dose administered, a decreasing dose schedule is marginally superior to an increasing or constant scheme, with more pronounced benefit for faster growing tumors, the minimum dose to stop tumor growth is age dependent, and a dose-dense schedule is favored. Expand
Fractional Proliferation: A method to deconvolve cell population dynamics from single-cell data
TLDR
An integrated method that uses extended time-lapse automated imaging to quantify the dynamics of cell proliferation reveals that the response of 'oncogene-addicted' human cancer cells to tyrosine kinase inhibitors is a composite of altered rates of division, death and entry into quiescence, a finding that challenges the notion that such cells simply die in response to oncogen-targeted therapy.

Tumor growth dynamics with nutrient limitation and cell proliferation time delay
It is known that avascular spherical solid tumors grow monotonically, often tends to a limiting final size. This is repeatedly confirmed by various mathematical models consisting of mostly ordinaryExpand
A unified model of sigmoid tumour growth based on cell proliferation and quiescence
TLDR
A simple cancer cell population dynamics model is proposed that provides a biological interpretation for these sigmoid functions’ ability to represent tumour growth and shows that the three sigmoids can be derived from the model and are in fact a single solution subject to the continuous variation of parameters describing the decay of the proliferation fraction and/or cell quiescence.

Modeling growth as a continuous time stochastic telomere-regulated process and the Gompertzian kinetics
TLDR
This work considered the continuous time version of the stochastic telomere regulated model for cultured cell division and obtained the analytic expression for the expected mean cell population, which adds a possible intrinsic control mechanism for this growth model. Expand
An Evolutionary Model of Tumor Cell Kinetics and the Emergence of Molecular Heterogeneity Driving Gompertzian Growth
TLDR
The early exponential growth of the tumor and the later saturation associated with the Gompertzian curve which results from the evolutionary simulations using simple statistical mechanics principles related to the degree of functional coupling of the cell states are explained. Expand

Quiescence as an explanation of Gompertzian tumor growth.
TLDR
A mathematical model for the growth of solid tumors which employs quiescence as a mechanism to explain characteristic Gompertz-type growth curves is proposed and it is shown that diminishing of the growth fraction is found in most tumors. Expand

TLDR
A mathematical model which has Gompertzian-like dynamics is derived which incorporates the deterministic failure of biological components with stochastic aspects of senescence and is used to obtain some of the lifespan curves found in the literature. Expand
An exponential-Gompertzian description of LoVo cell tumor growth from in vivo and in vitro data.
TLDR
The data of nine monolayer cultures, 48 multicellular spheroids, and 19 s.c. xenografts of LoVo cells were fitted, on an individual basis, by exponential and Gompertzian equations, respectively, and it is suggested that, at the particular tumor size of 155 microns in diameter, the tumor growths described by Gomertzian curves have the same growth rate as monolayers cultures.

TLDR
A new stochastic Gompertzian‐like mathematical model was developed which allowed us to forecast the growth of MTS and a correlation was found between the intensity of the added noise and the particular upper limit of volume size reached by each spheroid within two MTS populations obtained with two different cell lines.
