Role of JTT-501, a new insulin sensitiser, in restoring impaired GLUT4 translocation in adipocytes of rats fed a high fat diet


JTT-501 is an insulin-sensitising compound with an isoxazolidinedione rather than a thiazolidionedione structure. Sprague-Dawley rats fed a high fat diet for 2 weeks were used as an animal model of insulin resistance, and JTT-501 was administered for the final week of the diet. An euglycaemic glucose clamp study showed that the glucose infusion rate (GIR… (More)
