The purpose of this Toxicological Review is to provide scientific support and rationale for the hazard and dose-response assessment in IRIS pertaining to chronic exposure to ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (EGBE). It is not intended to be a comprehensive treatise on the chemical or toxicological nature of EGBE. This document presents background information and justification for the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) Summary of the hazard and dose-response assessment of ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (EGBE). IRIS Summaries may include oral reference dose (RfD) and inhalation reference concentration (RfC) values for chronic and other exposure durations, and a carcinogenicity assessment.
