Paper Abstract

Cancer is a disease whose cause has been eluding researchers. This paper details a new method for the diagnosis of cancer using characteristic autofluorescence from tissues. The experiments were carried out using a nitrogen laser, spectrofluorometer and tissue samples of normal and cancer tissues. The fluorescence spectra of various samples were obtained and observed both by in-vivo and in-vitro studies. Results from these studies have been detailed. The paper also presents a hypothesis on the origin of cancer.
