We consider the increasingly important and highly complex immunological control problem: control of the dynamics of immunosuppression for organ transplant recipients. The goal in this problem is to maintain the delicate balance between over-suppression (where opportunistic latent viruses threaten the patient) and under-suppression (where rejection of the transplanted organ is probable). First, a mathematical model is formulated to describe the immune response to both viral infection and… CONTINUE READING
