Here is a paper discussing some of the mathematical considerations with respect to tumour growth rates. Note in the introduction the expected shift from exponential to linear growth as tumours grow larger. If there was 3D MRI being done with the Texas mice then maybe we'll see charts (or data) indicating some of the properties shown in this paper.

I'm posting this because the mathematics, even in untreated tumours, is complex and the math becomes much more complex with treatment, expecially if the treatment has both a killing effects and a growth suppression effects occurring at the same time, as I think we have with BT2111.

.

Look at this article that discusses growth rates and the mathematics of treatments. This article also references a Forbes article.

Like I say, it's complex. And that's ok. The BT2111 results were great and we'll get a peak, I hope, at growth rates and data describing the ratio between the suppression of tumour growth and tumour killing action when Texas Tech publishes its paper. I have no fear of that paper. It's already great!
