A mathematical model of the interaction between chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and CD4+ (helper) T cells was developed to study the role of T cells in cancer survival. In particular, a system of four nonlinear advection diffusion reaction partial differential equations were used to simulate spatial effects such as chemical diffusion and chemotaxis on CLL survival and proliferation.
