Abstract

Based on our previous researches, this paper introduces a new differential equation model to describe the dynamics of traditional Chinese medicines (TCM) + nucleoside analogues (NA) anti-HBV infection treatment for the chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients. This model has five state variables. A treatment-activated specific term in this model is in charge of directly clearing patients’ HBV rather than damaging patients’ hepatocytes. As an application, we use this model to simulate the dynamics of TCM + NA anti-HBV infection personalized combination treatments. The numerical simulations and analysis show that the TCM + NA combination treatments are able to activate patients’ abilities of cytokine-midiated noncytolytic HBV clearance.
