AB - We investigate optimal control of a cancer-immune cell interactive model with delay in
the interphase compartment. By applying the optimal control theory, we seek to minimize
the cost associated with the chemotherapy drug, minimize the accumulation of cancer cells,
and increase the immune cell presence. Optimality conditions and characterization of the
control are provided. Numerical analyses are given to enhance the understanding of the
difficulties that occur in the control of cancer.
