  Purpose

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.
