Abstract This article reviews some of the recent advances in Raman spectroscopy, in areas related to natural tissues and cell biology. It summarizes some of the most widely used peak frequencies and their assignments. The aim of this study is to prepare a database of molecular fingerprints, which will help researchers in defining the chemical structure of the biological tissues introducing most of the important peaks present in the natural tissues. In spite of applying different methods, there… 
Raman Spectroscopy of Biological Tissues
Abstract We previously published a comprehensive review paper reviewing the Raman spectroscopy of biological molecules. This research area has expanded rapidly, which warranted an update to the
Ratiometric analysis using Raman spectroscopy as a powerful predictor of structural properties of fatty acids
TLDR
A simple ratiometric approach is demonstrated applied to fatty acids, a subsection of the lipid class, to allow the key structural features, in particular degree of saturation and chain length, to be predicted and proposed as a starting point for allowing more chemically and species-specific information to be elucidated from the highly multiplexed spectrum of multiple overlapping signals found in a real biological sample.
Contribution of Raman Spectroscopy to Diagnosis and Grading of Chondrogenic Tumors
TLDR
Raman spectroscopy is particularly effective when cartilaginous tumors need to be subjected to histopathological analysis, highlighting that Raman spectroscopic measurements can reveal a deep molecular understanding of the biochemical changes in cancer tissues in comparison with non-cancer tissues.
Chemometrics-Enabled Raman Spectrometric Qualitative Determination and Assessment of Biochemical Alterations during Early Prostate Cancer Proliferation in Model Tissue
The use of Raman spectroscopy combined with multivariate chemometrics for disease diagnosis has attracted great attention from researchers in recent years. This is because it is a noninvasive and
Spectroscopic evaluation of carcinogenesis in endometrial cancer
TLDR
The results of the study indicate that Raman spectroscopy is more effective in assessing the development of carcinogenesis in endometrial cancer than FTIR.
Developing an Algorithm for Discriminating Oral Cancerous and Normal Tissues Using Raman Spectroscopy
TLDR
Raman measurements of fresh resection tissue specimens demonstrated that OSCC had significantly higher nucleic acid, protein, and several amino acid contents than adjacent healthy tissues, which can be used to develop an in vivo Raman spectroscopic method for the tumor-free resection boundary during surgery.
Simultaneous FTIR and Raman Spectroscopy in Endometrial Atypical Hyperplasia and Cancer
TLDR
The method of spectroscopy enables differentiation of atypical hyperplasia andendometrial cancer tissues from the physiological endometrial tissue.
Pilot study on the value of Raman spectroscopy in the entity assignment of salivary gland tumors
TLDR
It is shown that a reliable SGT diagnosis based on LDA algorithm appears possible, despite variations in the entity-specific mean spectra, however, a standardized workflow for tissue sample preparation, measurement setup, and chemometric algorithms is essential to get reliable results.
Fusion of MALDI Spectrometric Imaging and Raman Spectroscopic Data for the Analysis of Biological Samples
TLDR
The presented data fusion approach provides a concrete guideline on how to combine Raman spectroscopic and MALDI spectrometric imaging data for biological analysis.

Discrimination of normal, inflammatory, premalignant, and malignant oral tissue: A Raman spectroscopy study
TLDR
It is shown that by this method all the four tissue types could be discriminated and diagnosed correctly and the biochemical differences between normal and pathological conditions of oral tissue are discussed from spectral differences of the different classes of spectra.
Effect of formalin fixation on the near-infrared Raman spectroscopy of normal and cancerous human bronchial tissues.
TLDR
NIR Raman spectra of human bronchial tissues were significantly affected by formalin fixing and tissue hydration and diagnostic markers at the 980-1100, and 1500-1650 cm(-1) regions derived from fixed tissues do not appear to be applicable for in vivo lung cancer detection.

TLDR
The results from more than two hundred case measurements show that the spectral diagnosis was in good agreement with the clinical result and the blue shift of fluorescence peak difference between the normal, liver fibrosis and liver cirrhosis were observed.
Cancer grading by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
TLDR
The absorbance ratio A1121/A1020 increased, along with the emergence of an absorbance pulse at 1121 cm-1, with increasing clinicopathological grade of malignant lymphoma and was greater in benign inflammatory tumors than in low-grade lymphomas.
