ABSTRACT
The article examines arsine-exposed human blood samples for arsenic speciation using high-performance liquid chromatography with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (HPLC-ICP-MS). Findings show that exposure to arsine can cause hemolysis and production of an unidentified arsenic species (As-adduct). Results also reveal that the As-adduct was not produced by Arsenic and plasma ingredients, but was derived from erythrocytes during the process of hemolysis by arsine. The author concludes that the prescence of As-adduct in the blood samples could be a possible marker for acute arsine intoxication.
