||There are numerous reports of ethylene glycol poisoning in humans in which the kidneys proved to be the target organ; neurotoxic and cardiopulmonary effects have also been observed following poisoning. The substance has a strong irritative effect. Animal studies indicate that ethylene glycol has a low acute toxicity; general symptoms are depression of the central nervous system and kidney damage; no mutagenic or carcinogenic effects have been observed; embryotoxic and teratogenic effects have been demonstrated at very high doses.
