Modeling of Brain Cancer
Editor's Note: This paper is a work in progress. It was written for a specific brain tumor patient, and is theoretical. Do not take the treatment recommendations as advice, rather look at the philosophy of the entire paper.
I am posting it as it is now because I feel this is one of the most important papers on the subject. I hope to generate discussion and feedback on the approach and the specific model assumptions so that we can quickly improve and refine the work. My ultimate hope is to do for brain tumors what was done for AIDS: take a completely hopeless disease and find some hope QUICKLY!
