In this paper a compartmental modelling approach is applied to provide a mathematical description of the activity of the anti-cancer agent topotecan, and delivery to its nuclear DNA target following administration. The activity of topotecan in defined buffers is first modelled using a linear two compartment model that then forms the basis of a cell based model for drug activity in live cell experiments. An identifiability analysis is performed before parameter estimation to ensure that the model output (i.e., continuous, perfect and noise-free data) uniquely determines the parameters. Parameter estimation. is performed using experimental data which offers concentrations of active and inactive forms of topotecan from high performance liquid chromatography methods.
