Abstract Toxic effects caused by di-n-butyl phthalate exposure have not been well characterised in humans. Glossary. Based on findings from animal studies, toxic effects in humans would not be expected at typical exposure levels, since effects in animals were seen only at very high doses. Limited evidence suggests that high level exposure may cause neurological symptoms such as dizziness, pain and numbness in humans. Glossary.
