Abstract: We report a novel method with higher than 90% accuracy in diagnosing buccal mucosa cancer. We use Fourier transform infrared spectroscopic analysis of human serum by suppressing confounding high molecular weight signals, thus relatively enhancing the biomarkers’ signals. A narrower range molecular weight window of the serum was also investigated that yielded even higher accuracy on diagnosis. The most accurate results were produced in the serum’s 10–30 kDa molecular weight region to distinguish between the two hardest to discern classes, i.e., premalignant and cancer patients. This work promises an avenue for earlier diagnosis with high accuracy as well as greater insight into the molecular origins of these signals by identifying a key molecular weight region to focus on.
