No immunotoxic effect on T cells with di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate in male C57BL/6 mice.


OBJECTIVES To clarify whether di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) has immunotoxic effects on both the expression of surface molecules (CD3, CD4, CD8 and CD28) on T cells of the thymus and spleen in male C57BL/6 mice.
