Phthalate metabolite levels of mothers and eight-year-old children after adjusting for creatinine.

Data are presented as geometric means and 95% CI, and metabolite concentrations were expressed relative to creatinine levels (mg/g). Sex differences were compared by using the Mann-Whitney U-test.

* P<0.00625 (0.05/8) indicates a significant difference.
