Efficacy Pilot Study of Triflusal in the Attenuation of Insulin Resistance in Human Obesity
To explore the efficacy of triflusal in the attenuation of insulin resistance in human obesity. Triflusal is a salicylate compound approved in several countries as antithrombotic agent (antiplatelet). The hypothesis is to explore if there is a reduction of obesity-induced insulin resistance by triflusal.
