conference paper description
In this paper, we analyze a system of six ordinary differential equations to model dynamics of the human papilloma virus (HPV), cells infected with the virus, cells susceptible to the virus, precancerous cells, cancerous cells, and the immune system's response. The model considers the dynamics of these cell populations when the immune system is boosted through immunotherapy treatment. We find sufficient global stability conditions using the method of localization of compact invariant sets. Graphs of numerical simulations show the dynamics of the system when conditions are met and when conditions are not met.
