Citation:

GRAY, L. E. REPRODUCTIVE TOXICITY OF PHTHALATE ESTERS. Presented at Information Hearing for Two California Legislative Committees, Sacramento, CA, January 10 - 20, 2006.

Description:

Phthalate esters display several modes of toxicity in mammalian species. In the rat, in utero exposure at relatively low dosage levels disrupts development of the reproductive system of the male rat by altering fetal testis hormone production. This presentation is a review of the reproductive toxicity of the phthalates from a review of the science.
