Washington: Advanced mathematical modelling can be used in the fight against cancer, a new research has revealed.A research conducted by University of Ottawa`s Faculty of Medicine has found a technique that predicts how different treatments and genetic modifications might allow cancer-killing, oncolytic viruses to overcome the natural defences that cancer cells use to stave off viral infection.Lead author Dr. Bell and co-author Dr. Mads Kaern led a team that has used mathematical modelling to devise strategies for making cancer cells exquisitely sensitive to virus infection while killing them without affecting normal, healthy cells.The researchers have established a mathematical model that described an infection cycle, including the way a virus replicated, spread and activated cellular defense mechanisms.
