15 Understanding Tumors Through Modeling Effect of pressure inside tumors in affecting circulation Vessel collapse Tumor surface instabilities as a function of limitations in transport of nutrients May lead to phenotypic alterations Balance between cell-cell adhesion and nutrient delivery Tumor adaptability and tumor stem cells Guide treatment Use of modeling as a tool for predicting patient-specific evolution and treatment of tumors

16 Tumor Modeling Many models Review article: Nonlinearity, 23, R1 (2010) 578 references Each paper introduces different model for a specific application Classification of models Discrete: Cellular automata, Agent based,... Continuous: Multiphase, Interface focused,...

17 Discrete Models Focus on individual cells Mutations Contact forces Cell division Movement and growth Gene regulatory networks Advantage Some parameters may be obtained from single cell experiments Limitations Challenging to simulate millions of cells Large number of parameters (which ones are controlling factors?) Shirinifard et al, PLoS One, 4, e7190

18 Continuous Models Interface focused Map tumor surface behavior to existing interface models In general do not include biological details Multiphase modeling From mixture theory Consider different components Conservation laws (mass, momentum) Constitutive relations specific for each component Thermodynamic consistency Possibility of including biological processes Fewer parameters than discrete methods Preziosi et al, J.Math.Biol., 58, 625

19 Approach to moving boundary problems Phases associated with value of Interface implies = 0 Diffuse interface Original problem obtained when 0 Dynamics of Can be derived from a free energy F[, ] Non-conserved order parameter: Allen-Cahn equation Conserved order parameter: Cahn-Hilliard equation Phase-Field Models Phase 1 Phase 2 = -1 = 1 f 1

20 Examples Canham-Helfrisch energy Phase separation of elastic phases Dendritic growth Phase-field model in tumor growth Travasso, Castro, Oliveira, Phil. Mag. (2011)

21 Example of Multiphase and Phase-Field A multiphase model Cristini et al, J.Math.Biol., 58, 723 (2009) Mass balance for each component Incompressibility Momentum conservation Constitutive Relations

22 Example of Multiphase and Phase-Field Formation of ramified structures More dramatic at low proliferation rate Fingering occurs at zero chemotaxis Instability driven by non-linear mobility Cristini et al, J.Math.Biol., 58, 723 (2009)

23 Therefore... Phase-Field is focused at the interface Link between phase-field and multiphase Further reduction of parameters Variability of existing phase-field models lead to possibility of direct application in tumor growth Able to answer questions on the evolution of tumor size BUT... Do not include competing populations of tumor cells or mutations Hybrid models are a possible solution

24 Tumor Growth - Competition - Evolution Deregulated proliferation Mutations Darwin selection Metabolism and migration Anaerobic matabolism 2 ATP instead of 36 No need of Oxygen Produces acid Helps migration Prevailing phenotype Acid resistant Gerlee, Anderson, J Theor Biol 2007 Acid

25 Tumor Growth - Angiogenesis Switch - Vascular Phase The tumor promotes the development of nearby vessels to have oxygen Challenging simulations Many parameters Cell based Continuous Hybrid MackLin et al, J Math Biol 2009 Chaplain et al, Annu Rev Biomed Eng 2006

26 Angiogenesis Sprouting of new blood vessels from existing ones Relevant in varied situations Morphogenesis Inflammation Wound healing Neoplasms Diabetic Retinopathy For tumors Altered vessel network Dense, no hierarchical structure Capillaries are fragile, permeable, with variable diameter Capillary network carries both nutrients and drugs Gerhardt et al, Cell (2003) Lee et al, Cell (2007)

27 Two types of cells Tip cells are special Have filopodia Follow gradients of VEGF Produce MMPs which degrade ECM Construct path Do not proliferate Stalk cells Proliferation regulated by VEGF Not diggers Follow tip cell created pathway Gerhardt et al, Cell (2003) Agent Based Component Phase-field Component

28 Angiogenesis in a Nutshell Capillaries are constituted by Endothelial cells Pericites, muscle cells Endothelial cells Pericites, smooth muscle cells… VEGF VEGF weakens capillary wall Endothelial cells may divide Cells follow VEGF gradient The first cell is activated and opens way in ECM Cells organize to form lumen Blood flows when capillaries form loops Blood reorganizes network Meyer et al, Am.J.Path. (1997)

29 The Model The penetration length of T inside the capillary is given by D = 1 inside capillary = -1 outside capillary T Two equations Diffusion: concentration of VEGF, T Phase-Field: order parameter dynamics Tip cell Characteristic radius R c Perfect Notch signaling Introduced when T > T c Velocity: regulates the proliferation and D the chemotaxis Ginzburg-Landau free energy Chemical potential Cahn-Hilliard dynamics Surface tension driven, bulk material conservation

30 Simulation Starting configuration Capillary close to tissue in hypoxia Concentration of VEGF at hypoxic cells constant Capillary Cells in hypoxia Blood vessel network emerge

31 Proliferation Higher proliferation rate leads to thicker and ramified vessels Low ProliferationHigh Proliferation

32 Chemotaxis Response Higher tip cell velocity leads to thinner and more ramified vessels Low ChemotaxisHigh Chemotaxis

33 VEGF Prodution Higher production of VEGF leads to more vessels but not thicker vessels Gerhardt et al., Develop. Biol. (2003) Low VEGFHigh VEGF

Propriedades dos tecidos Tecido como meio viscoel á stico Permeabilidade e elasticidade dos vasos Metabolismo das c é lulas Possibilidade de respiração anaer ó bia? Em que circunstâncias? Influencia do meio á cido na viabilidade das c é lulas Transporte de prote í nas Reacções qu í micas As c é lulas tumorais são de diferentes tipos Dinâmica de popula ç ões Evolução
