BACKGROUND The present study was designed to examine the effect of chronic treatment with rosiglitazone - thiazolidinedione used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus for its insulin sensitizing effects - on the Leydig cell steroidogenic capacity and expression of the steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR) and cholesterol side-chain cleavage(More)
Thiazolidinediones work by sensitizing the action of insulin by acting as ligands for the PPAR receptor. This study describes the effects of chronic treatment with new benzylidene-thiazolidine-2,4-dione (LPSF/GQ-06) on Leydig cell steroidogenic capacity, and expression of the steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR) and cholesterol side-chain cleavage(More)
