For validation part of my study, I need a comparison between my model of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and ODE models of this area. But, I’m really confused because ordinary differential equation (ODE) models of cancer have suggested different behaviors for tumor and immune cell populations. For example, the below behaviors are reported by the survey of Eftimie et al. (2011) [1]:

I don’t understand the reason of the difference! And, I don’t know which behavior is right. Could anyone possibly help me, please?
