An extensive dose-response study following in utero and lactational exposure to di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) was conducted. A wide range of low and high DEHP doses were tested. Reproductive effects were evaluated on male offspring rats. Female Wistar rats were treated daily with DEHP and peanut oil by gavage from gestation day 6 to lactation day 21 at doses of 0.015, 0.045, 0.135, 0.405 and 1.215 mg DEHP/kg body weight (bw)/day (low doses) and at 5, 15, 45, 135 and 405 mg DEHP/kg bw/day… CONTINUE READING
