The HRMAS NMR spectroscopic studies have been performed on gallbladder tissues specimens for the first time. A total number of 83 tissue specimens were analysed from 83 patients under going cholecystectomy. The proton NMR metabolic profile clearly distinguishes between the benign chronic cholecystits, xanthogranulomatous cholecystitis and malignant gallbladder tissues. The OPLS-DA, multivariate analysis provided correct classification of the tissues types. The investigation demonstrates the potential of HRMAS NMR for tissues metabotyping.
