Paper Abstract

The transition of the tumor fluorescence from auto fluorescence towards PpIX fluorescence was studied under spectral and spatial resolution in an in-vivo tumour model. Human tumour cells were embedded on the chorioallantois membrane (CAM) of fertilised hen's eggs. A time period of 8 days is sufficient to grow tumours of a size of several millimeters. After the application of ALA and h-ALA the intensity and the wavelength spectra of the fluorescence were observed under blue light exposure (lambda) = 405 nm) by the spectrometer SpectraCube. 1-2 hours after the application of the photosensitizer the spectra show the yield of the typical double peak structure of PpIX.
