A Chemostat system incorporating hepatocellular carcinomas is discussed. The model generalizes the classical Chemostat model, and it assumes that the Chemostat is an increasing function of the concentration. The asymptotic behavior of solutions is determined. Sufficient conditions for the local and global asymptotic stability of equilibrium and numerical simulation are obtained, which is used to select the disease control tactics.
