Mutagenic and antifertility sensitivities of mice to di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
(DEHP) and dimethoxyethyl phthalate (DMEP).
And even moderately high levels of mono-n-butyl phthalate and di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
were associated with a 70% jump in risk.
While di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
(DEHP) has provided the medical industry with a stable ortho-phthalate plasticizer for many years, regulatory trends and consumer demands will inevitably drive the industry to non-phthalate alternatives.
Regulating agencies have issued warnings about the potential dangers of constructing IV sets and their accessories out of plastics containing di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
They assessed the women's exposure to four phthalates--DnBP, DiBP, di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
, and diethyl phthalate--in the third trimester of pregnancy by measuring levels of the chemicals' metabolites in urine.
And third, women with moderately high levels of the chemicals mono-n-butyl phthalate and di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
had approximately a 70% increased risk of diabetes.

Consider the environmentally ubiquitous plastic-softening agent, di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
Determination of di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
levels in human blood plasma and cryoprecipitates.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned healthcare providers to protect vulnerable patients from exposure to di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
(or DEHP), a plasticizer that leaches from PVC medical devices.
(DEHP) is a family of chemicals called phthalates.
If more-comprehensive studies support the new finding, the chemical, di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate
(DEHP), maybe deemed harmless to newborns.
