Mechlorethamine hydrochloride was used in a fluorescence-based apurinic/apyrimidinic site cleavage assay for the identification of apurinic/apyrimidinic endonuclease inhibitors in human cells. It was used in a study to demonstrate the effect of povidone iodine ointment against skin toxicity caused by sulphur and nitrogen mustard.
