In this respect SCENIHR quotes Wirnitzer histopathology of DEHT (Wirnitzer et al.2011). It states that accordingclinical and histopathology research DEHT doesn’t have an influence on liver, thyroid, reproductive function and organs in the highest doses of DEHT. Based on currently available data, DEHT is not genotoxic, so it is considered as one of the best potential alternative plasticisers in PVC medical devices. The SCENIHR report points though that alternative plasticizers are not as well tested, so further research is required for DEHT.
