Abstract: The human population is widely exposed to polyethylene glycol (PEG) and its chemical derivatives, which are widely used as vehicles or co-solvents in many pharmaceutical and cosmetic preparations. However, PEG polymers of low molecular weight differ significantly from polymers of higher molecular weight in their physico-chemical properties, biological effects on cell permeability and their absorption and excretion, as well as their higher toxicity and possibly genotoxicity. In the present study
