OBJECTIVE Vascular endothelium is emerging as a therapeutic target for atherosclerotic macrovascular disease in diabetes using oral hypoglycemic agents with pleiotropic actions. We have addressed whether the thiazolidinedione troglitazone has effects on the endothelial cell response to injury in rat aorta and its interaction with the growth response of(More)
BACKGROUND Inhibition of vascular smooth muscle cell (vSMC) proliferation by oral anti-hyperglycemic agents may have a role to play in the amelioration of vascular disease in diabetes. Thiazolidinediones (TZDs) inhibit vSMC proliferation but it has been reported that they anomalously stimulate [3H]-thymidine incorporation. We investigated three TZDs, two(More)
