Abstract

Evidence of possible molecular crosstalk between inflammation and insulin resistance suggests that treatments for diabetes might be useful in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), or vice versa. However, in a new trial of a PPARγ agonist in RA, the clinical effect was at most modest. So, does such an approach have a future?
