A series of in vitro studies were designed to determine whether di-(2-ethyl-hexyl)-phthalate (DEHP)-plasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and DEHP itself initiated an inflammatory response in both human and rat blood. Additionally, the effect of methanol washing of the PVC on the inflammatory response was studied in both blood types. Blood from both species was exposed to first, no material; second, ground DEHP-plasticized PVC; third, methanol-washed ground DEHP-plasticized PVC; and fourth… CONTINUE READING
