Part Description

LP16802-8   Arsenic
Arsenic (As, CAS No. 7440-38-2) is a metalloid that exists in both inorganic and organic forms in the environment and is classified as a human carcinogen by the U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and IARC (International Agency for Research in Cancer). Arsenic levels are naturally higher in certain geographical areas, including regions of Asia, China, Chile, Mexico and United States. [PMID: 27894683] Exposure to toxic levels of arsenic, mainly via ingestion of As contaminated water and food, occur in these areas as well as near hazardous waste sites or in the workplace. Chronic exposure to low level of arsenic can cause skin lesions (e.g. melanosis, leucomelanosis, and keratosis), neurological effects, high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, and cancers typically involving the skin, lung, and bladder. [PMID: 19190988] High exposure levels to arsenic can cause death.

Veterinary Medicine:
Arsenic is seldom reported since the concentrations normally found in animal feeds are significantly less than the toxic dietary concentration. If arsenic poisoning occurs, signs of intoxication include reduce feed intake and depressed growth. Some animal species can have convulsions and incoordination followed by posterior paresis and quadriplegia, blindness and decreased hemoglobin. In pigs, cases of arsenic poisoning usually arise from the use of organic arsenical growth-promoting feed additives. Source: Regenstrief LOINC

Change Reason
The Property has been changed from ACnc to reflect the new model for ordinal terms where results are based on a cut-off value.; The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.
