BACKGROUND Some phthalates have shown antiandrogenic effects in rat offspring. Premature infants may be exposed to high amounts of specific phthalates during hospitalization, and thus are potentially at risk. OBJECTIVE We evaluated longitudinal phthalate exposure and metabolism in full-term (FT) and preterm (PT) infants. METHODS Fifty-eight FT and 67 PT (gestational age, 24.7-36.6 weeks) infants were recruited at birth and followed until 14 months (nine times). Urinary concentrations of… CONTINUE READING
