ABSTRACT The efficacy of arsenic trioxide (ATO) in the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) is widely accepted. It is necessary to determine the concentration of arsenic since it is a poisonous drug as we all known. The profiles of arsenic speciation in patients with relapsed or refractory APL had been shown in few reports. Arsenic metabolites concentrations in plasma of patients with newly diagnosed APL during the first course of arsenic remission induction therapy were first determined and the complicated change regularity of these metabolites concentrations in this phase was first described in our study. We demonstrated the concentration of trivalent inorganic arsenic (As(III)), which is regarded as the most effective and poisonous, was much lower than other metabolites. Concentrations of the same arsenic metabolites were obviously distinct among various individuals We infer that determination of metabolites separately is necessary, can not be replaced by total arsenic determination. In addition, the amount of arsenic methylated metabolites increased in the first course of ATO therapy, which might play a more and more important pole. Further research should be done to study the relationship between arsenic metabolites concentrations and efficacy, side effects of patients with APL treated with ATO.
