This model is a variant of the previously developed SBM of whole-blood infection assay. While in the previous model a spontaneous immune evasion mechanism (A) was implemented in this model immune evasion was caused by PMN molecule secretion (B).

The state-based model (SBM) allow to simulate the interplay between innate immune cells, such as monocytes and PMN, and Candida albicans and to quantify immune reaction rates like phagocytosis and killing rates. It is implemented in C++.
