Background: Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes, accounting for over 90% of cases. Current treatment approaches for type 2 diabetes include diet, exercise, and a variety of pharmacologic agents, including insulin, biguanides, sulfonylureas, and thiazolidinediones.
Methods: In the present scenario, researchers focused themselves on thiazolidine ring-based compounds to cure type 2 diabetes mellitus. Among the peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR) family, PPAR-γ is the most effective in curing glucose homeostasis.
Results and conclusions: Thiazolidine ring-based compounds act as PPAR-γ agonists, and herein, we have successfully developed nine derivatives of thiazolidine ring-based compounds that are found to be biologically potent using two-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationship model.
