    Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) overexpression in breast cancers is associated with poor prognosis and resistance to therapy. Current techniques for estimating this important characteristic use ex vivo assays that require tissue biopsies. We suggest a novel noninvasive method to...

    In this paper, we present a mathematical model predicting the fraction of proliferating cells in G1, S, and G2/M phases of the cell cycle as a function of EGFR and HER2. We show that it is possible to find parameters for the mathematical model so that its predictions agree with the experimental...
