Pathological examination of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) needle-biopsied samples by certified pathologists represents the gold standard for differential diagnosis between ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and invasive breast cancers (IBC), while information of marker metabolites in the samples is lost in the samples. Infrared laser-scanning large-area surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) equipped with gold-nanoparticle-based SERS substrate enables us to visualize metabolites in fresh-frozen needle-biopsied samples with spatial matching between SERS and HE staining images with pathological annotations. DCIS (n = 14) and IBC (n = 32) samples generated many different SERS peaks in finger-print regions of SERS spectra among pathologically annotated lesions including cancer cell nests and the surrounding stroma. The results showed that SERS peaks in IBC stroma exhibit significantly increased polysulfide that coincides with decreased hypotaurine as compared with DCIS, suggesting that alterations of these redox metabolites account for fingerprints of desmoplastic reactions to distinguish IBC from DCIS. Furthermore, the application of supervised machine learning to the stroma-specific multiple SERS signals enables us to support automated differential diagnosis with high accuracy. The results suggest that SERS-derived biochemical fingerprints derived from redox metabolites account for a hallmark of desmoplastic reaction of IBC that is absent in DCIS, and thus, they serve as a useful method for precision diagnosis in breast cancer.
