Abstract

Troglitazone (TGZ), a member of the thiazolidinedione class of drugs used to treat type-II diabetes, has been associated with hepatotoxicity (Biswas et al., 2001). TGZ differs structurally from the newer non-hepatotoxic glitazone, rosiglitazone (RGZ), in that it contains the chromanol moiety of Vitamin E (Vit E). This study compares the toxicity of TGZ, RGZ and Vit E in human HepG2 cells
