The discovery of fractional cell kill allowed the quantification of cytotoxicity using survival data, greatly simplifying experimental analysis. It also suggested the 6 Role of Modeling in Pharmacotherapeutics Fig. 1 The Skipper-Schabel Model is demonstrated here. The model shows an exponentially growing cancer comprised of two cellular subpopulations, symbolized by the blue and the green lines. The model’s growth is exponential, and so straight lines are seen on the semilogarithmic plot. Note that the vertical axis is the logarithm to the base ten of cell number, while an arithmetic scale is used for time on the horizontal axis.
