Abstract A collection of papers on the following subjects: acute LD50 of mono-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (MEHP) in mice and rats; sub-acute and local toxicity of MEHP in mice; in vitro uptake of bis(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) by rat heart tissues; DEHP effect on rat heart Na+, K+-ATPase; in vitro metabolism of DEHP by enzyme systems and analyses of organs of calves and humans exposed to cardiac by-pass and renal dialysis procedures; analyses of blood and organs of calves maintained on cardiac by-pass for extended periods of time; localisation of tritiated DEHP in the mouse; fate and metabolism of DEHP in Peromyscus Maniculatus; ultrastructural observations on lung tissue following DEHP administration; effects of DEHP on: hexobarbital sleep time, coagulation time in mice after administration of dicumarol, and reproduction in mice at low dosage; effect of a phthalate plasticiser on blood compatability of polyvinyl chloride; tissue culture studies on MEHP; etc.
