Phthalate esters are a widely used class of water-insoluble organic chemicals. The adverse effects of di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) were chiefly studied in animals, while their potential toxicity to humans has not been properly evaluated. It was hypothesized that the effect of DEHP on human cells depends on the concentration, and this study examined the effects of different concentrations of DEHP on cell growth in cultured human keratinocytes NCTC 2544, together with the possible… CONTINUE READING
