Abstract

In this talk some advances on the optimal control model formulation and resolution for chemotherapy scheduling is presented.  Firstly, a DDE model is introduced for tumor progression with immune response upon which a suitable optimal control problem formulation is devised and several heuristic algorithms are evaluated.  A second model that incorporates two drugs: cytotoxic and cytostatic is presented.  We show numerically that the optimal scheduling on this new model corresponds to an asynchronous delivery.
