The TZD Star Awards are given to leaders in several fields who have demonstrated exceptional creativity, leadership, and organizational skills, and the ability to successfully motivate and collaborate with others to move toward zero deaths on Minnesota's roads.
Using the sulfonylureas as the reference class (treatment failure OR = 1), the order of treatment failure (ORs least to greatest) was estimated to be basal insulin (0.1); SGLT-2i (0.68); GLP-1RA (0.84); sulfonylurea (1); TZD (1.18); and DPP-4i (1.37).
The strategy was performed using the following terms in English: sulfonylurea (SU); alpha glucosidase inhibitors (AGIs); metformin (MET); thiazolidinediones (TZD); dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (DPP-4i); sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2i); glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor analogues (GLP-1RA); type 2 diabetes (T2DM); placebo controlled; and randomized controlled trials.
Due to the paucity of literature on this subject instigated us to investigate the possible adipogenic differentiation of GMSCs and potential insulin sensitization (through the production of smaller lipid droplets) by RA with TZD's.
PPAR[gamma] activator TZD, which acts as a potent insulin sensitizer used for treatment of T2DM, has attempted as a treatment for NAFLD.
Our findings may provide better understanding of the mechanisms underlying the insulin-sensitizing action of the TZD.

Several transcription factors (top left) which mediate adiponectin gene transcription are regulated to increase (thiazolidinedione, TZD) or decrease (tumor necrosis factor-alpha, TNF-[alpha]) adiponectin expression.
The modeled outcome was the amount of time between the initiation date of SU or TZD and the earliest date of any of the three outcomes, censoring on the date an individual started a third drug or the end of the study period.
