Summary of Clinical Use
Troglitazone is used to treat non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (type II diabetes), along with diet and exercise. Treatment may also include insulin, a sulfonylurea drug, or metformin if necessary. However, use of this drug has been withdrawn in the UK, US and Japan due to adverse liver effects associated with its use.
Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Troglitazone is an agonist with affinity for PPARγ and to a lesser extent PPARα. Activation of PPARs by troglitazone results in decreased NFκB, which reduces inflammation by regulating genes involved in the immune response.
