Paper Abstract

In vitro measurements of levels of ultraweak luminescence were carried out using healthy and malignant tissues obtained from 63 patients undergoing surgical operations for cancers of colon, stomach and breast. The results obtained support recent reports that there is a difference in mean intensities of the ultraweak luminescence emitted from healthy and malignant tissues. This work demonstrates, however, that because of a large scatter among the intensities detected for samples obtained from different patients the differences found for the mean intensities cannot serve as a parameter for differentiating between the malignant and normal human tissues.
