Determination of δ-aminolevulinic acid-induced protoporphyrin IX in blood

In neurosurgery, δ-aminolevulinic acid-induced fluorescence-guided resection (ALA-FGR) of high grade gliomas (HGGs) improves tumor resection. ALA is a precursor of protoporphyrin IX (PPIX) and accumulates in tumor tissue assisting surgery by its fluorescence. In an effort to investigate whether ALA-...
