The compartmental differential equation models described earlier are also adaptable to the study of the dynamics of the immune system in response to infection. Such models can provide novel and useful insights into the observed time course of quantitative clinical measures of infection within the human host and how these might relate to the probable course which may be taken by the infection; by providing explanations for observed dynamical changes in such measures they also offer the prospect of illuminating some of the reasons why response to infection appears to differ between hosts. Useful examples of such work may be found in work on HIV by Nowak and Bangham (1996) and Nowak et al. (1997), and on viral hepatitis by Bocharov et al. (2004).
