After this period, levels of DEHP metabolites started to decrease but did not disappear, indicating the persistence of exposure.
Only Cure Medical catheters are not made with DEHP or BPA.
Trasande says the series of studies are believed to be the first to examine potential health risks from DEHP replacements.
Medical devices made from PVC contain 20-40% DEHP.12,13 Mediset, which is produced as a set of infusion, contains 25-33% DEHP.
To find a plasticizer option that performs similarly to DEHP, the material many device designers and OEMs currently use for tubing, device designers are turning to alternate non-phthalate plasticizers to satisfy regulatory requirements and customer preferences.
Ortho-phthalates in general and di-ethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) specifically --are under increased pressure.
Low molecular weight phthalates, for example di-methyl phthalate (DMP), DBP, are present in cosmetic products (nail polish, perfumes, facial creams, shampoos, body lotions ...), while high molecular weight phthalates, for example DEHP, BBzP, DNOP, DINP, DIDP, are present in plastic containers, adhesives, clothes of raincoat type and plastic products with polyvinyl chloride which is added in order to improve flexibility [4].
For example, a previous study reported that DEHP and mono-2-ethylhexyl phthalate (MEHP) can pass through the placenta and shorten the gestational period of a developing fetus [5].
Where new production capacities are created in Western Europe, these will be almost exclusively dedicated to the production of phthalate-free plasticisers; even China is exhibiting excess capacities for DEHP now, whereas thus far DEHP had accounted for about 60 percent of the Asian-Pacific market.
The EIS Assessment Report is expected be available on the DEHP website in due course at:
At the global level, the trend is quite different from what is happening with low phthalates in Europe, with DEHP still representing around 50% of all phthalates used worldwide.
The spokesman added: "DEHP is used to soften plastic but does not bind with it, which can lead it to leach out of products.
