Description: Netoglitazone, also known as isaglitazone and MCC-555, is an agent belonging to the glitazone class of antidiabetic agents with antihyperglycemic activity. Netoglitazone exerts both peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR) alpha and gamma agonist activity. Netoglitazone decreases bone formation and increases marrow adipocyte formation in vivo.
