We propose to investigate an ordinary differential equation model of tumor growth under effect of immune cells and a chemotherapeutic drug. A comprehensive study of two chemoterapy protocols, conventional and metronomic, are considered by partial differential equations. The immune cells and its interaction will be added as a new equation a posteriori. (AU)
