Mechanism of action
Pioglitazone is a selective agonist at peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARγ) in target tissues for insulin action such as adipose tissue, skeletal muscle, and liver. Activation of PPARγ increases the transcription of insulin-responsive genes involved in the control of glucose and lipid production, transport, and utilization.
Oral administration of pioglitazone, peak serum concentrations are observed within 2 hours, food slightly delays the time to peak serum concentration, increasing time to approximately 3-4 hours, but does not alter the extent of absorption.
The average apparent volume of distribution of pioglitazone is 0.63 ± 0.41 L/kg.
Approximately 15-30% of orally administered pioglitazone is recovered in the urine. The bulk of its elimination, then, is presumed to be through the excretion of unchanged drug in the bile or as metabolites in the feces.
