Abstract: This paper provides a complete analysis of the stability of the steady-states for a three-dimensional system modeling cell dynamics after bone marrow transplantation in chronic myeloid leukemia. There are given results for both chronic and accelerated-acute phases of the disease.

Subject Classification: 37C75, 37N25, 34D23
