We investigated the differences in the Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectra of normal and abnormal human placentas. Normal placentas, placentas with infant intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR), and placentas from mothers with diabetes mellitus (DM) were used, none of which had been treated before measurement. The tissues were divided into three parts: the upper one-third portion (P1), the middle portion (P2), and the lower one-third portion (P3). Placental tissues were also investigated histochemically. The differences of the main second-derivative FTIR spectra among P1, P2, and P3 in normal placentas were observed in bands appearing between 1080 and 1090 cm(-1). Bands in P2 were observed at 1083 cm(-1), which was significantly higher than that in P3 (p < 0.05). The spectrum of P2 tissue in placentas with infant IUGR had a peak at 1081 cm(-1), which was significantly different from those of P1 and P3 (p < 0.05). In placentas with DM, the P2 band was shifted to a peak at 1088 cm(-1). These data were well correlated with the histochemical sugar-chain staining pattern of the P2 portion of the placenta. Our data suggested that this IR technique is applicable to the clinical diagnosis of diseases in the gynecological field.
