|Official Title:||A Randomized Controlled Trial of Pioglitazone on Insulin Resistance, Insulin Secretion and Atherosclerosis in Renal Allograft Recipients Without History of Diabetes|
- Insulin Resistance and Insulin Secretion [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
- carotid intima-media thickness [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
|Study Start Date:||November 2004|
|Study Completion Date:||November 2007|
|Primary Completion Date:||November 2007 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The pioglitazone treatment group received 30mg pioglitazone at 2 weeks after renal transplantation for 12 months.
|No Intervention: 2|
This is a prospective, randomized, open-label study. The pioglitazone treatment group received 30mg pioglitazone at 2 weeks after renal transplantation for 12 months.
After treatment, we estimated insulin sensitivity index for transplantation,first phase and second phase insulin secretion, secretion area under the curve,and carotid intima-media thickness.
