As illustrated in Fig. 3, a cancer growing relatively more quickly because it is relatively smaller will experience greater log kill than if it were treated at a larger size. Unfortunately this does not mean that clinical results will always be superior when therapy is initiated against a small cancer. As also shown in Fig. 3, if the tumor 10 Role of Modeling in Pharmacotherapeutics cell number nadir achieved is not small enough to completely preclude regrowth, the cancer will grow back relatively more rapidly when it is smaller than when it is larger.
