We present results on determination of glucose diffusion coefficients in skin of healthy mice and mice with diabetes in vitro. The method is based on the measurement of optical collimated transmittance kinetics of the tissue concurrently with administration of the chemical agent.
Ten skin samples from healthy mice and ten skin samples from diabetic mice were measured concurrently with administration of aqueous 30%-glucose solution. The transmittance spectra have been measured using USB4000-Vis-NIR spectrometer (Ocean Optics, USA) in the spectral range 400-1000 nm. The measurements were performed at room temperature about 20°C. Diabetes was induced by subcutaneous injection of alloxan to animals.
Increase of the collimated transmittance of skin samples of healthy and diabetic mice was observed. Glucose diffusion coefficients were estimated as (2.71±1.09х10-6 cm2/sec in skin of healthy mice and (1.24±0.51)х10-6 cm2/sec in skin of mice with diabetes. These results can be used for optimization of optical clearing technologies and for improvement of diagnostics and monitoring of diabetes mellitus.
