  journal={Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine},
Changes in fluorescence emission of the serum from patients with various cancers are characterized. The measurement of fluorescence emission of serum in the UV-visible range allows by estimation of NAD(P)H levels to monitor the alterations in energy metabolism, resulting from changes in the level of coenzymes in serum associated with neoplastic diseases. 
Characterization and Diagnosis of Cancer by Native Fluorescence Spectroscopy of Human Urine
Based on the fluorescence emission characteristics of urine and statistical analysis, it may be concluded that the fluorophores nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH) and flavins may be considered as metabolomic markers of cancer. Expand
Native fluorescence spectroscopy of blood plasma of rats with experimental diabetes: identifying fingerprints of glucose-related metabolic pathways
It was shown that the fluorescence emission band shape at 320 nm excitation is the most indicative of hyperglycemia in the blood plasma samples, based on the changes in reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate concentration due to glucose-related metabolic pathways and protein fluorescent cross-linking formation following nonenzymatic glycation.

Synchronous Luminescence Spectroscopic Characterization of Urine of Normal Subjects and Cancer Patients
In this study, urine samples of both normal subjects and cancer patients were characterised using synchronous luminescence spectroscopy with a Stokes shift of 20 nm to resolve emission spectrum without much of photobleaching of fluorophores. Expand

The assessment of the energy metabolism in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome by serum fluorescence emission.
Serum NAD(P)H was directly correlated with serum CoQ10 levels and inversely correlated with urine hydroxyhemopyrrolin-2-one levels, and following patients NAD(p)H levels over time may aid in selecting therapeutic strategies and monitoring treatment outcomes. Expand
Two-photon autofluorescence lifetime imaging of human skin papillary dermis in vivo: assessment of blood capillaries and structural proteins localization
A generalized approach to two-photon imaging of the papillary dermis components is proposed, which extends the capabilities of this technique in skin diagnosis and investigates the role of collagen I and elastin in the capillary structure. Expand

Mapping of the total fluorescence of human blood serum as a new method for its characterization
Abstract The total fluorescence of human serum is measured at various excitation and emission wavelengths and presented in topographic form. The main fluorescent species have tentatively beenExpand
Native fluorescence spectroscopy of normal and malignant epithelial cells.
Native fluorescence spectroscopy of normal human oral and malignant epithelial cells was studied under uv excitation to observe differences in the excitation spectra for 340 nm emission to utilized for both discrimination and changes associated with the amino acid residues in the cellular proteins.

Liquid-chromatographic profiling of endogenous fluorescent substances in sera and urine of uremic and normal subjects.
Of the numerous fluorescent substances found in uremic body fluids and in normal urine, some were also detectable in normal serum, but at relatively weak fluorescence intensities. Expand
Fluorescence topography in biology. III: Characteristic deviations of tryptophan fluorescence in sera of patients with gynecological tumors.
No clear correlation between the extent of the fluorescence deviations and the relative concentration of the protein fractions as determined by electrophoresis is found, which could rule out inflammation in tumor patients as an explanation for this effect. Expand
Adenine and Pyridine Nucleotides in the Red Blood Cells of Subjects with Solid Tumors
The results showed a lower level of ATP in the erythrocytes of subjects affected by solid tumors, whereas no significant modifications were observed in the other compounds. Expand
Fluorescence spectroscopy of normal, SV40-transformed human keratinocytes, and carcinoma cells.
A difference in the intracellular metabolic state of NADH was found between the normal cells and the cancer or virus-transformed cells, and manifests as a blue spectral shift in the emission spectra. Expand
Albumin-bound fluorescence in serum of patients with chronic renal failure.
A fluorescent species with an emission maximum of 415 +/- 5 nm, separated by thin-layer chromatography, appears to account for the increased serum fluorescence. Expand
Ultraviolet fluorescence of human sera: I. Sources of characteristic differences in the ultraviolet fluorescence spectra of sera from normal and cancer-bearing humans.
Because increased percentages of alpha-2 globulins and decreased percentages of albumin frequently accompany malignancies, it is suggested that this condition accounts for the differences between the emission spectra of sera from normal and cancer-bearing humans. Expand
Multicomponent analysis in clinical chemistry by use of rapid scanning fluorescence spectroscopy.
The Video Fluorometer, which exploits the multi-channel capability of a low-light-level television sensor to simultaneously acquire excitation and emission spectra, can meet the first requirement of multicomponent fluorescence analysis and two types of data-reduction strategies are presented.

Noninvasive diagnosis of oral neoplasia based on fluorescence spectroscopy and native tissue autofluorescence.
Consistent differences exist between the fluorescence spectra of abnormal and normal oral mucosa, and fluorescence Spectroscopy has the potential to improve the noninvasive diagnosis of oral cavity neoplasia. Expand
