Department of Biomathematics, School of Medicine, University of California Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California, United States of America
PLoS ONE 7:e46613. 2012..In order to guide clinical trials examining HER2-targeted therapy in the adjuvant setting, we propose a mathematical model to examine BCSC population dynamics and predict optimal duration of therapy...
- Stem cell niche dynamics: from homeostasis to carcinogenesisKevin S Tieu
Computational and Systems Biology Interdepartmental Program, School of Medicine, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095, USA

- Decline in physical functioning in first 2 years after breast cancer diagnosis predicts 10-year survival in older womenMary Sehl
Division of Hematology Oncology, Department of Medicine, David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, USA
J Cancer Surviv 7:20-31. 2013..Although most patients recover after treatment, some patients do not. These changes may be magnified in older women with comorbid conditions and could impact survival outcomes...
