On the basis of the results of magneto-optical studies and their comparison with the outcome of medical tests magneto-optical MOCB and tPSA serum markers of cancer/recovered patient are presented. Status of the cancer serum donor is recognized as presence of the laevorotatory optical active molecules of (−)ρ density in serum while status of the recovered donor is recognized as quantitative domination of the dextrorotatory (+)ρ molecules in serum. These molecular information carriers (−)ρ and (+)ρ are recorded by the magneto-optical circular birefringence MOCB effect in B2 magnetic field. The laevo/dextrorotatory carriers are enantiomers in the case of (−)ρ = (+)ρ relations fulfilled for any individual cancer and the same recovered patient. The positive predictive value PPV of MOCB results is 100%.

1. Introduction

The experimental MOCB technique [1] applied for serum and enantiomers B2 chirality investigation of ovarian cancer serum and the neat chiral tartaric acid were firstly published since 1997. The possibility of differentiation between the cancer and non-cancer states on the basis of the magneto-optical results has been tested [2]. The MOCB data collected suggest that the blood serum of cancer patient contains a stable bio-molecular structure. The B2 effect in serum induced birefringence α(B2)exp = (α+ − α), where α+ and αdenotes the B2 induced optical activity of the dextroand laevorotatory molecular carriers. The physical basis of the MOCB method is that the α+ rotation is bearing by the dextrorotatory while the α by the leavorotatory carriers. This statement has been supported by the results [1,2] obtained for patients clinically diagnosed by standard medical treatment and by analysis of their serum magneto-optical characteristics. The later introduce pure molecular physics to the cancer marker searching while the bio-chemical methods concerns mainly a proteins.

Magneto-optical circular birefringence (MOCB) measurements indicate extraordinary result for a cancer donor and healthy donor cases despite the cancer blood donor is after successful therapy and/or donors are a different non-cancer patients. Molecular carriers in serum standing for the the magnetic field induced B2 circular birefringence are carrying information on the cancer/healthy donor status by the result of experimentally measured α+ and α.

2. Experiment

The magneto-optical rotation α(B2) induced by the B2 field in the serum samples studied is described as: α(B2) = bexpB2L, where bexp = α(B2)exp/2B2L and L is the light path in the serum.

The serum samples have been irradiated with an argon laser beam having wave length λ = 488 nm, at T ≈ 295 K and the effective excitation volume of the serum was Veff = 15.7 mm3.

Intensity of the magnetic field [3] acting on the serum sample was B = (15 − 30 T).

The experimental result of bexp = α(B2)exp/(2B2L) is a measure of serum magneto-optical birefringence expressed by the α(B2)exp = (α+ − α).

Magneto-optical bexp marker, quadratic magnetic field induced circular birefringence (−/+)α(B2)exp, effective natural optical activity αexp, density number (−)ρ of the laevorotatory carriers, density number (+)ρ of the dextrorotatory carriers are representative for the clinically diagnosed prostate cancer patient.

Magneto-optical characteristic of serum is defined by the bexp = b(−) + b(+) markers [2]. The b marker is described by the relation bexp/(−)ρ = −4.114 × 1028 Sq while serum magneto-optical result of b+ marker is described by the relation bexp/(+)ρ = 2.786 × 1011 Rq. where Sq and Rq denote the tensors: the electric quadrupolar and the magnetic dipolar optical polarizability of the laevorotatory and dextrorotatory molecules, respectively. The (−)ρ denotes the density number of the laevoand (+)ρ of the dextrorotatory carriers in blood serum standing for the magnetic field induced circular birefringence of chiral media in B2 magnetic field. Magneto-optical circular birefringence (MOCB) measurements indicate extraordinary result for a cancer donor case: b(−) ≠ 0, bexp < 0 and for healthy donor case: b(+) ≠ 0, bexp > 0, despite the cancer blood donor is after successful therapy and/or donors are a different non-cancer patients.

3. Results

Table 1 gives a clear presentation of the prostate cancer diagnose and an outlook on the patient recovered status after the 45 Gy radiotherapy and 15 Gy brachytherapy processes. The laevorotatory molecular carriers quantitative MOCB representations are given by: bexp < 0, (−)ρ and Sq data of a cancer status serum and by the superimposed dextrorotatory molecular carriers in serum of the same donor after successfully therapy: bexp > 0, (+)ρ and Rq results. The α(B2)exp, bexp and αexp experimental data of the cancer/healthy blood donor samples are within an experimental error of +/−5%.

4. Discussion

The MOCB prostate cancer marker b(−) of patient’s serum is carrying information on the density number of the magneto-optical active laevorotatory carriers (−)ρ = −1.79 × 1022 b(−) mm−3.

For the bexp = ±17 × 10−5 deg·T−2·mm−1 the results of (−)ρ and (+)ρ are calculated (Table 1). This is a result of a pure physical analyze which introduce the molecular description of cancer status and prove coexistence of the cancer laevorotatory (−) and of the recovered dextrotrorotatory (+) information carriers in serums. It seems, status of (−) data bexp = −17.0 × 10−5 deg·T−2·mm−1, (−)ρ = 3.04 × 1018 carriers/mm3 of the laevorotatory carriers, (cancer case)and of the (+) data bexp = 16.67 ×10−5 deg·T−2·mm−1, (+)ρ = 2.98 × 1018 carriers/mm3 of the dextrorotatory carriers, (recovered patient case), are enantiomers. This statement is accepted (within +/−5%) by the MOCB experimental results of −b(−), (−)ρ, and b(+), (+)ρ,.

These coherences are equivalent to the MOCB effect detected for a neat enantiomers [3] and the resultant findings of for cancer and recovered patient serums are very useful to support a remark: serum contain a lot of different proteins and molecular structures which are optical active and are forming a total optical activity αexp of the cancer case patient serum status (−)ρ(+)ρ. During a successfully therapy the density numbers of (−)ρ and (+)ρ carriers in serum are changing and finally the effective relation (−)ρ(+)ρ, in serum of the recovering patient, is stabilized. That allowing to observe the dextrorotatory enantiomer in serum of the recovered patient status. Simply, the natural optical activity αexp of any serums contain: of the B2 induced effective birefringence of that medium. The αt denote birefringence of the optical active proteins which are not bearing the (+)ρ and (−)ρ carriers while and are the electric quadrupolar, α(q), and the magnetic dipolar, α(d), B2 induced laevorotatory/dextrorotatory birefringence of a single B2 active laevorotatory and dextrorotatory carriers, respectively.

Same carriers of the natural optical active structures in serum are laevorotatory electric quadrupole. Their density number of (−)ρ dominate in serum of the cancer donor as in that medium (−)ρ(+)ρ, however a density number (+)ρ of the dextrorotatory magnetic dipole carriers are also present in the same serum.

The{p.m.α(d)} = −{p.m.α(q)} relation, valid for enantiomers, gives:.

On the other hand, a correct density number (−)ρ of the cancer information carriers presence in serum acted on by B2 magnetic field is out-coming from the relations:

where [4] as from Equations (11) and (14) [2] the relation 4.114 × 1028 Sq = 2.786 × 1011 Rq is fulfilled by any equivalent serums of (−/+) enantiomer status defined by b(−)/(−)ρ = b(+)/(+)ρ. The (−) and (+) data (Table 1) gives: Sq = 1.35 × 10−51, Rq = 2.05 × 10−34 and data of αt = 45.6 × 10−3 deg/mm3 indicate presence of only 3.7% of the B2 active quadrupolar electric carriers in the analyzed prostate cancer serum. Experimentally recorded effective MOCB birefringence bexp/(−)ρ = const, Sq = const, (Equation (17)) [2], and results of the present paper introduce origin laevorotatory quadrupolar electric carrier marked the cancer marker bexp < 0.
