Among the advantages is its simplicity. The disadvantages include the absence of detail. For instance, no spatial interactions can be described by ODEs, thus imposing the assumption of "mass-action"-type interactions. Stochastic effects are not included, restricting the applicability to large systems with no "extinction" effects. Finally, because of an empirical nature of this kind of modeling, this method (like most other empirical methods) presents a problem when trying to find ways to measure coefficients in the equations.

Say, instead of LAt, we could have the probability L(l - u)At to reproduce faithfully, and probability LuAt to create a mutant. Further, we could consider a chain of mutations, and describe the evolution of the number of cells of each type. This resembles Moolgavkar's description of multistage carcinogenesis [Moolgavkar and Knudson (1981)] which is reviewed in Chapter 3. In the birth-death type processes, the population of cells may become extinct, or it could grow indefinitely. Another type of process that is very common in tumor modeling corresponds to constant population size.
