Paper Abstract

The laser “in vivo” autofluorescence diagnostics is now widely studied and applied in different areas of medicine, such as an oncology, dermatology, etc. Recently we have reported of created new professional multiwave laser diagnostic system (MLDS) for this purpose under the international scientific research and development project #1001 supported by the International Scientific and Technology Center. This presentation lights some results of application of the MLDS in a real clinical practice at Moscow Regional Research and Clinical Institute “MONIKI”, Department of Radiology. With the use of MLDS we investigated a skin and oral cavity cancer endogenous fluorescence before, during and after standard radiotherapy treatment. A statistical analysis showed that the best radiotherapy result was achieved for the patients with a small initial porfirines’ autofluorescence and a great initial flavines’ one from irradiated tumor tissues. It was shown that each radiotherapy procedure has an influence on a tissues’ autofluorescence intensity. The tendencies in porfirines’ fluorescence during a treatment course can be an additional prognostic factor for the prediction of the efficacy of a radiotherapy treatment. Moreover, it was estimated that a number of non-cancerous skin disease has a typical “cancer” initial autofluorescence, that makes it difficult to distinguish them one from another with the use of only the fluorescence diagnostics, but opens the way to investigate the non-cancerous tissues diseases with the help of tissues endogenous fluorescence phenomenon.
