Nowadays, specific clinical studies in the field of cancer research, and
in particular of hormone-sensitive cancer prevention and treatment are
more and more required. These studies are based on the development
of various hormonal therapies for different dysfunctions using steroids.
Naturally, the monkey brain tissue contains an important amount of
steroids. Understanding the distribution and the behaviour of natural
steroids in tissues can be of valuable help for the development of new
and efficient synthetic steroids.
Raman Imaging can be employed to investigate the monkey brain tissue.
