Phase transitions in tumor growth: II prostate cancer cell lines

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology
José Llanos PérezJosé M Nieto Villar


We propose a mechanism for prostate cancer cell lines growth, e.g., LNCaP and PC3 based on a Gompertz dynamics. This growth exhibits a multifractal behavior and a “second order” phase transition. Finally, it was found that the cellular line PC3 exhibits a higher value the entropy production rate compared to LNCaP, which is indicative of the robustness of PC3, over to LNCaP and may be a quantitative index of metastatic potential tumors.
