The dynamic nature of immune responses requires the development of appropriate experimental and theoretical tools to quantitatively estimate the division and death rates which determine the turnover of immune cells. A number of papers have used experimental data from BrdU and D-glucose labels together with a simple random birth-death model to quantify the turnover of immune cells focusing on HIV/SIV infections [Mohri et al. 279 (1998) 1223-1227, Hellerstein et al. 5 (1999) 83-89, Bonhoeffer et… CONTINUE READING
