Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy visible mobilelipids are considered important markers in the diagnosis ofhuman cancer and are thought to be closely involved in variousaspects of tumour transformation, such as cell proliferation,necrosis, apoptosis, hypoxia and drug resistance. A methodallowing the straightforward identification of the lipid classescontributing to the mobile lipids in human malignant tissuesis highly advisable. Ex vivo High Resolution Magic AngleSpinning Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy was done directlyon human cerebral, renal and colorectal malignant tissuespecimens. A diffusion edited sequence, based on stimulatedecho and bipolar gradient pulses, was used to characterizemolecules with low diffusion rates, arising from mobile lipidcomponents. Cholesterol, triglycerides and phosphatidylcholineare simultaneously detected and all contribute to the mobilelipid resonances present in malignant glioma and clear cellrenal carcinoma tissue specimens spectra. On the contrary,papillary cell renal carcinoma spectrum is predominated byphosphatidylcholine resonances and that of colorectal adenocarcinoma is characterized by signals arising from triglycerides. Ex vivo diffusion edited High Resolution Magic AngleSpinning Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy, done on intacttissue, is a powerful analytical tool to obtain a simple andimmediate identification of mobile lipid components. This can offer a significant contribution to better understanding their involvement in cancer tissues. Furthermore, ex vivo high resolution spectroscopic measurements allow to improve the interpretation of in vivo Magnetic Resonance spectra, increasing its clinical potentiality.
