Arsenic is a pollutant widely distributed in the environment. There are numerous studies on the toxicity of trivalent arsenic forms As(III), MMA(III), and DMA(III), but few data are available on the processes of digestion and absorption of these arsenic species and the mechanisms involved are unknown. The present study evaluated the processes involved in intestinal absorption of trivalent arsenic species, using the Caco-2 cell model as system. The apparent permeability values obtained for As… CONTINUE READING
