Mathematical model for pulsed chemotherapy
Laboratory of Biomathematics, Univ. Sidi Bel Abbes, PB. 89, Sidi Bel Abbes 22000, Algeria
A pulsed chemotherapeutic treatment model is investigated in this work. We prove the existence of nontrivial periodic solutions by the mean of Lyapunov-Schmidt bifurcation method of a cancer model. In this model we consider the case of application of two drugs, the first one P with continuous effect, it appears in the differential equations, and the second one T with instantaneous effects expressed by impulse equations. The existence of bifurcated nontrivial periodic solutions are discussed with respect to the competition parameter values.
