Abstract
We consider the method of confocal microscopy as a convenient instrument for determination of chemical compounds in biological tissues and cells. In particular, we study the dynamics of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) concentration that could be used as a bio-marker of energy metabolism pathologies at the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). On the basis of data obtained by the confocal microscopy, the values of ATP concentration have been calculated for each case. Possible correlations with other characteristics of pathology processes obtained from plasma of leukemia patients show that ATP value could be a prognostic factor of the treatment success. The role of ATP in the drug metabolism switching is also discussed within the context of kinetic modelling of metabolism processes leading to the production of 6-Thioguanosine monophosphate, which is a principal acting agent in chemotherapy.
