Abstract : As a mathematical model proposed to understand the behaviors of interacting species, cross-diffusion systems with functional responses of prey-predator type are considered. In order to obtain $W^1_2$-estimates of the solutions, we make use of several forms of calculus inequalities and embedding theorems. We consider the quasilinear parabolic systems with the cross-diffusion terms, and without the self-diffusion terms because of the simplicity of computations. As the main result we derive the uniform $W^1_2$-bound of the solutions and obtain the global existence in time.
