PMID:  6733235     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The amount of a substance produced and stored in red blood cells is modelled as the solution to a first-order differential equation involving the stochastic rate of production of the substance within each cell, the lifespans of the cells, and the birth and death rates of the cells. Estimation of the parameters of the model is outlined for a special case, and the model is fitted to a set of real data taken from clinically diabetic dogs.
