Paper Abstract

No clear image of Ultraweak Biophoton Emission (UBE) from animal has been reported so far. With the detection system equipped with a back-illuminated cooled CCD (-60 degree(s)C), we have clearly observed UBE images of the wound tissues and the tumor tissues with long exposure time. The intensity of UBE from the wound tissue or the tumor tissue is higher than that from normal tissues. We proposed that the increase of UBE from wound response is the result from defense mechanism of body in which white blood cells' respiration burst is involved, the UBE from transplanted cancer tissue is related to the disorder of metabolism because of the malignant growth and multiplication of tumor cells. Non- invasive diagnosis might be realized in medicine by this technique following the further improvement of sensitivity of the detector.
