Dose dependency of therapeutic monoclonal antibody (mAb), 2F8, binding to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR).


This is a model for the dose dependency of a therapeutic monoclonal 
antibody (mAb), 2F8, binding to epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR).
There are three sets of data (low dose, designated with suffix 2,
high dose, designated with suffix 20, and a higher dose, designated
with suffix 40).  The structure of this model is to have three
duplicate models with shared parameters for simultaneous optimization
of the three corresponding data sets.


The equations for this model may be viewed by running the JSim model applet and clicking on the Source tab at the bottom left of JSim's Run Time graphical user interface. The equations are written in JSim's Mathematical Modeling Language (MML). See the Introduction to MML and the MML Reference Manual. Additional documentation for MML can be found by using the search option at the Physiome home page.
