In this paper, we examined a model of cell invasion focusing on the wavefront of the neural crest (NC) cells in the case of Hirschsprung’s disease (HSCR). Hirschsprung’s disease (HSCR) is a congenital defect of intestinal ganglion cells and causes patients to have disorders in peristalsis. This simulation model was performed using the fractional differential equations (FDEs) based upon two basic cell functions. Here, we simulated the mathematical model in a one-dimensional setting, based on the fractional trapezoidal numerical scheme and the results showed an interesting outcome for the mobility of the cellular processes under crowded environments.
