  • Potent and selective PPARγ agonist with no activation of PPARα and PPARδ [2].
  • Anti-diabetic agent with potent glucose-lowering effects and decreasing insulin resistance in adipose tissues. Stimulates adipogenesis [1, 6, 8].
  • Apoptosis and cell cycle arrest inducer in several cancer cell lines [3-8].
  • Anti-inflammatory [8-10, 12].
  • Inhibits vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) migration [11].
