Ciglitazone is not itself thermogenic but increases the potential for thermogenesis in lean mice

Chronic dietary administration of the oral hypoglycaemic ciglitazone (3 g/day for 14-28 days) to lean, non-diabetic CD1 mice resulted in increased brown adipose tissue mitochondrial GDP binding and a marked increase in the thermic effect of the betaadrenoceptor agonist BRL 26830A. However, ciglitazone was not itself thermogenic after an acute dose, nor did it raise resting metabolic rate during chronic dietary dosing.
