Abstract
Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) can provide detailed molecular structure and composition information, and has demonstrated great potential in biomedical filed. This spectroscopy technology has become one of the most important optical techniques in the early diagnosis of cancer. Nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) is a malignant neoplasm arising in the nasopharyngeal epithelial lining, which has relatively high incidence and death rate in Southeast Asia and southern China. This paper reviews the current progress of SERS in the field of cancer diagnostics, including gastric cancer, colorectal cancer, cervical cancer and nasopharyngeal cancer. In addition to above researches, we recently develop a novel NPC detection method based on tissue section using SERS, and obtain primary results. The proposed method has promising potential for the detection of nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
