Evaluation of Raman spectroscopy for prediction of antitumor response to silibinin and its nanoparticulates in DMBA-induced oral carcinogenesis @article{JRS:JRS4831, author= {Gohulkumar, M. and Kumar, Piyush and Murali Krishna, C. and Krishnakumar, N.}, title= {Evaluation of Raman spectroscopy for prediction of antitumor response to silibinin and its nanoparticulates in DMBA-induced oral carcinogenesis}, journal= {Journal of Raman Spectroscopy}, issn= {1097-4555}, url= {http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/jrs.4831}, doi= {10.1002/jrs.4831}, pages= {n/a--n/a}, keywords= {silibinin, nanoparticles, oral carcinogenesis, Raman spectroscopy, PC-LDA}, year= {2016}, abstract= {Raman spectroscopy is a vibrational spectroscopic technique that can be used to monitor the therapeutic efficacy of anticancer drugs during carcinogenesis in a non-invasive and label-free manner. The present study aims to investigate the biochemical changes exerted upon free silibinin (SIL) and its nanoparticulate (SILNPs) treatment against 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA)-induced oral carcinogenesis in the fingerprint region of 1800–500 cm−1 using HE-785 Raman spectrometer. Raman spectra differed significantly between the control and tumor tissues, with tumor tissues characterized by increased intensities of vibrational bands such as nucleic acids, phenylalanine and tryptophan and a lower percentage of lipids when compared to the control tissues. Further, oral administration of free SIL and SILNPs significantly increased lipids and decreased the levels of tryptophan, phenylalanine and nucleic acid contents. Overall, the treatment of nanoparticulate SIL was found to be a more potent antitumor effect than free SIL in preventing the formation of tumor and also brought back the several Raman bands to a normal range in the buccal mucosa of hamsters during DMBA-induced oral carcinogenesis. In addition, the detailed secondary structure of proteins in the control and experimental groups is also presented. Furthermore, the diagnostic algorithms based on principal component linear discriminant analysis (PC-LDA) achieved an overall sensitivity of 94–100% and specificity of 76–100%. These results further demonstrate that Raman spectroscopy associated with PC-LDA diagnostic algorithms could be a valuable tool for rapid and sensitive detection of specific biomolecular changes at the molecular level in response to anticancer drug.

Raman spectroscopy detects biomolecular changes associated with nanoencapsulated hesperetin treatment in experimental oral carcinogenesis @article{1612-202X-13-3-035901, author= {K Gurushankar and M Gohulkumar and Piyush Kumar and C Murali Krishna and N Krishnakumar}, title= {Raman spectroscopy detects biomolecular changes associated with nanoencapsulated hesperetin treatment in experimental oral carcinogenesis}, journal= {Laser Physics Letters}, volume= {13}, number= {3}, pages= {035901}, url= {http://stacks.iop.org/1612-202X/13/i=3/a=035901}, year= {2016}, abstract= {Recently it has been shown that Raman spectroscopy possesses great potential in the investigation of biomolecular changes of tumor tissues with therapeutic drug response in a non-invasive and label-free manner. The present study is designed to investigate the antitumor effect of hespertin-loaded nanoparticles (HETNPs) relative to the efficacy of native hesperetin (HET) in modifying the biomolecular changes during 7,12-dimethyl benz(a)anthracene (DMBA)-induced oral carcinogenesis using a Raman spectroscopic technique. Significant differences in the intensity and shape of the Raman spectra between the control and the experimental tissues at 1800–500 cm −1 were observed. Tumor tissues are characterized by an increase in the relative amount of proteins, nucleic acids, tryptophan and phenylalanine and a decrease in the percentage of lipids when compared to the control tissues. Further, oral administration of HET and its nanoparticulates restored the status of the lipids and significantly decreased the levels of protein and nucleic acid content. Treatment with HETNPs showed a more potent antitumor effect than treatment with native HET, which resulted in an overall reduction in the intensity of several biochemical Raman bands in DMBA-induced oral carcinogenesis being observed. Principal component and linear discriminant analysis (PC–LDA), together with leave-one-out cross validation (LOOCV) on Raman spectra yielded diagnostic sensitivities of 100%, 80%, 91.6% and 65% and specificities of 100%, 65%, 60% and 55% for classification of control versus DMBA, DMBA versus DMBA  +  HET, DMBA versus DMBA  +  HETNPs and DMBA  +  HET versus DMBA  +  HETNPs treated tissue groups, respectively. These results further demonstrate that Raman spectroscopy associated with multivariate statistical algorithms could be a valuable tool for developing a comprehensive understanding of the process of biomolecular changes, and could reveal the signatures of the antitumor response of drugs.}} .
