Pioglitazone Usage And Synthesis
  • Usesantihyperlipidemic, HMGCoA reductase inhibitor
  • DefinitionChEBI: A member of the class of thiazolidenediones that is 1,3-thiazolidine-2,4-dione substituted by a benzyl group at position 5 which in turn is substituted by a 2-(5-ethylpyridin-2-yl)ethoxy group at position 4 of the phenyl ring. It exhibits hypoglycemic acti ity.
  • IndicationsPioglitazone is approved for use as monotherapy and in conjunction with metformin, sulfonylureas, and insulin. It is taken once a day with or without food. Though pioglitazone may also cause a small increase in low-density lipoprotein concentrations, there is usually a modest decrease in triglyceride levels, but it unclear whether this has any clinical significance or persists in the long term.
  • brand nameActos (Takeda).
  • General DescriptionPioglitazone, (±)-5-[[4-[2-(5-ethyl-2-pyridinyl)ethoxy]phenyl]methyl]-2,4-thiazolidinedione (Actos),is an odorless, white, crystalline powder that must be convertedto a salt such as its hydrochloride before it will haveany water solubility. Although the molecule contains one chiralcenter, the compound is used as the racemic mixture. Thisis primarily a result of the in vivo interconversion of the twoenantiomers. Thus, there are no differences in the pharmacologicalactivity of the two enantiomers.
