Toxicity Profile
Route of ExposureInhalation
Mechanism of ToxicityThe liver damage caused in rats by 1,3-dichlorobenzene is accompanied by induction of xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes of the phenobarbital type. In rats, a disturbance in thyroid homoeostasis can develop by hepatic enzyme induction: 1,3-dichlorobenzene induces glucuronosyl transferases. The conjugation of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (1) and triiodothyronine (2) is increased by the induction of glucuronosyl transferases. This leads to an increased release of T4 and T3 in the thyroid follicles.
Metabolism1,3-Dichlorobenzene is readily absorbed after ingestion.

Carcinogenicity (IARC Classification)3, not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans. (3)
Uses/SourcesNot Available
Minimum Risk LevelNot Available
Health EffectsAcute (short-term) exposure to 1,4-dichlorobenzene, via inhalation in humans, results in irritation of the skin, throat, and eyes. Chronic (long-term) 1,4-dichlorobenzene inhalation exposure in humans results in effects on the liver, skin, and central nervous system (CNS). No information is available on the reproductive, developmental, or carcinogenic effects of 1,4-dichlorobenzene in humans. A National Toxicology Program (NTP) study reported that 1,4-dichlorobenzene caused kidney tumors in male rats and liver tumors in both sexes of mice by gavage (experimentally placing the chemical in their stomachs).
