Native fluorescence spectroscopy has shown potential to characterize and diagnose oral malignancy. We aim at extending the native fluorescence spectroscopy technique to characterize normal and oral submucous fibrosis (OSF) patients under pre- and post-treated conditions, and verify whether this method could also be considered in the monitoring of therapeutic prognosis noninvasively. In this study, 28 normal subjects and 28 clinically proven cases of OSF in the age group of 20 to 40 years are…

Monitoring the metabolic response to nanoencapsulated silibinin treatment in DMBA-induced oral carcinogenesis using endogenous fluorescence

The results revealed that a significant decrease in the optical redox ratio is observed in DMBA-induced tumor tissues, which indicates increased metabolic activity compared to the control tissues and suggests that the fluorescence spectroscopic technique in conjunction with PC–LDA has a potential for rapid and sensitive detection of specific metabolic alteration and changes in the endogenous fluorophores in response to anti-cancer drug treatments.

Evaluation of variations in plasma collagen NADH and flavin in pre and post treated breast cancer patients using native fluorescence spectroscopy

Assessment of the efficacy of various treatment modalities, in this case surgery (modified radical mastectomy) and chemotherapy by comparing the NF spectra of breast cancer patients, post-surgery with those on completion of chemotherapy and normal subjects indicates that there is a statistical significance in the spectral variations in the region of collagen, elastin and NADH.

Native Fluorescence and Time Resolved Fluorescence Spectroscopic Characterization of Normal and Malignant Oral Tissues Under UV Excitation—an In Vitro Study

The average lifetime of oral tissues under UV excitation exhibits better statistical significance when compared to fractional amplitudes and component lifetime, as well as the observed spectral differences.

In vivo Optical redox ratio was investigated for four different anatomical locations viz., cheek mucosa, vermilion border of the lip, Hard palate, dorsal side of the tongue of healthy oral cavity, and the statistical significance was also investigated.

Noninvasive fluorescence excitation spectroscopy for the diagnosis of oral neoplasia in vivo

It was observed that diagnostic algorithm based on discriminant function scores obtained by SLDA–LOO method was able to distinguish WDSCC from normal lesions with a sensitivity of 100% and specificity of 100%; therefore, porphyrin can be used as a native tumor marker.

Endogenous porphyrin fluorescence as a biomarker for monitoring the anti-angiogenic effect in antitumor response to hesperetin loaded nanoparticles in experimental oral carcinogenesis

It is suggested that endogenous porphyrin fluorescence could be considered as a reliable spectral marker and a very useful tool for monitoring the anti-angiogenic effect of cancer.

UV fluorescence is evaluated as an alternative tool to detect urinary AGEs in four groups of well characterized chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients over a wide range of kidney insufficiency and in a group of healthy subjects.



Endogenous Fluorescence Spectroscopy of Cell Suspensions for Chemopreventive Drug Monitoring¶

Ex endogenous fluorescence spectroscopy was used to measure metabolic changes in response to treatment with 4HPR in ovarian and bladder cancer cell lines, suggesting fluorescence redox values along with changes in tryptophan fluorescence may be a response as well as an endpoint marker for chemopreventive drugs.

In vivo multiphoton fluorescence lifetime imaging of protein-bound and free nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide in normal and precancerous epithelia.

Results indicate that the decrease in protein-bound NADH lifetime with dysplasia is due to a shift from oxidative phosphorylation to glycolysis, consistent with the predictions of neoplastic metabolism.

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.

The results suggest that fluorescence spectroscopy can provide a simple, objective tool to improve in vivo identification of oral cavity neoplasia.

Characterization of native fluorescence from DMBA-treated hamster cheek pouch buccal mucosa for measuring tissue transformation.

The steady-state native fluorescence spectra of extracts of normal mucosa as well as of different stages of oral lesion of the 7,12-dimethylbenz (a) anthracene (DMBA)-induced hamster cheek pouch carcinogenesis model have been measured and analysed and found to decrease as the stage of the cancer increases.

Native Fluorescence Spectroscopy of Blood Plasma in the Characterization of Oral Malignancy¶

Native fluorescence characteristics of blood plasma were studied in the visible spectral region, at two different excitation wavelengths, to discriminate patients with different stages of oral malignancy from healthy subjects.

Native Fluorescence Spectroscopy of Blood Plasma in the Characterization of Oral Malignancy ¶

The diagnostic potentiality of the present technique was estimated in the discrimination of malignant subjects from normal and nonmalignant diseased subjects such as liver diseases and in the discriminant analysis performed across three groups.
