Paper Abstract

In vivo Native Fluorescence spectroscopic characterization of oral tissue and saliva of same group of normal, and patients with oral squamous cell carcinoma conditions were studied at 350 nm excitation. The measured fluorescence emission spectra exhibit broad emission with peaks due to NADH, FAD and Porphyrin. To resolve the emission from individual fluorophores, the measured fluorescence spectra were subjected to spectral deconvolution. Further, the variations in relative distribution, peak shifts and spectral broadening were analyzed with respect to the fluorophores, NADH, FAD, and porphyrin. The changes in the above photophysical characteristics of various native fluorophores between normal and cancer group in both tissue and saliva confirms that there is a significant molecular level changes during the transformation of normal into cancer. The extracted spectral signatures of tissues and saliva were also subjected to linear discriminant analysis and the diagnostic accuracy between tissue and saliva were compared.
