A precise diagnosis of peritoneal dissemination is necessary to determine the appropriate treatment strategy for colorectal cancer. However, small peritoneal dissemination is difficult to diagnose. 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) is an intermediate substrate of heme metabolism. The administration of 5-ALA to cancer patients results in tumor-specific accumulation of protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), which emits red fluorescence with blue light irradiation. We evaluated the usefulness of photodynamic diagnosis (PDD) using 5-ALA to detect the peritoneal dissemination of colorectal cancer. EGFP-tagged HT-29 cells were injected into the peritoneal cavity of BALB/c nude mice. After 2 weeks, the mice were given 5-ALA hydrochloride, and metastatic nodules in the omentum were observed with white light and fluorescence images. Twelve colorectal cancer patients suspected to have serosal invasion according to preoperative computed tomography (CT) were enrolled in this study.
3.Intraoperative Detection of Superficial Liver Tumors by Fluorescence Imaging Using Indocyanine Green and 5-aminolevulinic Acid.

BACKGROUND/AIM: Indocyanine green (ICG) and the porphyrin precursor 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) have been approved as fluorescence imaging agents in the clinical setting. This study evaluated the usefulness of fluorescence imaging with both ICG and 5-ALA for intraoperative identification of latent small liver tumors.
4.Type 2 diabetic conditions in Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fatty rats are ameliorated by 5-aminolevulinic acid.

A precursor of protoporphyrin IX, 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA) is used as a prodrug for photodiagnosis and photodynamic therapy. Recently, it has been shown that 5-ALA reduces glucose levels during fasting and after glucose loading in prediabetic subjects. We hypothesized that 5-ALA ameliorates diabetic conditions through mitochondrial changes in visceral adipose tissue. In order to explore the metabolic effects on the type 2 diabetic state, we administered ALA hydrochloride in combination with sodium ferrous citrate to Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fatty (OLETF) rats at intragastric doses of 20 and 300 mg kg(-1) d(-1) for 6 weeks. The administration of 300 mg kg(-1) d(-1) of 5-ALA improved glucose intolerance, hypertriglyceridemia, and hyperleptinemia in OLETF rats more effectively than the administration of an equivalent dose of metformin, in accordance with reductions in food intake and body weight. Furthermore, the weight of the retroperitoneal fat tended to decrease and cellular mitochondrial content of the fat was markedly reduced by the 5-ALA administration, showing a positive correlation.
