Summary of Clinical Use
An anti-diabetic drug. All EMA approvals for this drug have been withdrawn or suspended, due to concerns over associations with increased risks of heart attacks and death [1].
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Highly selective agonist at peroxisome proliferator activated receptors in tissues targeted by insulin such as adipose tissue, skeletal muscle and liver. Activation of these receptors improves control of glucose production, transport and utilisation through regulation of the transcription of insulin-responsive genes. This has the effect enhancing tissue sensitivity to insulin.
