English Glitazones are peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-Γ agonists with powerful insulin-sensitizing properties. They promote the development of metabolically active adipocytes that can lead to a substantial gain in fat mass. Telmisartan is an ANG II type 1 receptor antagonist with partial PPAR-Γ agonistic properties. Recently, telmisartan has been reported to prevent weight gain and... Show more…
