A comprehensive metabolic profiling of malignant and non-malignant tumors of neuro-endocrine system alongwith tumors present in other parts of body has been performed using 1H HRMAS NMR spectroscopy. The contributions of small metabolites in each kind of tumor define the mechanisms, which are critical to cellular function of a particular tissue. This may provide a better understanding of biochemical alterations in each tissue and thus, may open novel avenues of therapeutic interventions for various cancers.
