An overview of the biological activities of arsenic compounds containing more than one arsenic atom in their molecular structure is presented. This contribution covers the literature of the last 10–12 years concerning the in vitro and in vivo studies on arsenic species. They include inorganic oxides and sulfides, already employed for a long time in traditional Chinese medicine and currently investigated against hematological or solid malignancies, with arsenic trioxide clinically used in the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia.

Abstract

An overview of the biological activities of arsenic compounds containing more than one arsenic atom in their molecular structure is presented. This contribution covers the literature of the last 10–12 years concerning the in vitro and in vivo studies on arsenic species. They include inorganic oxides and sulfides, already employed for a long time in traditional Chinese medicine and currently investigated against hematological or solid malignancies, with arsenic trioxide clinically used in the treatment of acute promyelocytic leukemia.
