Hypoglycemia is rare with metformin monotherapy. 2 Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Elimination. 5) is completely protonated and cationic over the physiologic pH range. Absorption of metformin from the GI tract after oral administration is incomplete, with 20 to 30% recovered in the feces (120). In single oral dosing studies, a lack of dose proportionality indicates decreased absorption with increasing dose. Peak blood levels are obtained in 2 to 4 h. The average volume of distribution after a single oral dose of 850 mg is 654 L.

The mechanism(s) by which PPARy activation produces these clinically useful effects is not completely established. Although at lower levels than those in adipose tissue, PPARy is present in skeletal muscle and liver, tissues primarily responsible for glucose disposal and gluconeogenesis. Hence, direct regulation by PPARy of expression of key enzymes controlling these processes cannot be ruled out. On the basis of comprehensive mRNA profiling, it has been estimated that administration of a PPARy agonist in a diabetic rodent model altered the expression level directly or indirectly of approximately 10% of all genes in white or brown adipose tissue, whereas about 2% of the genes in liver and 1% in skeletal muscle were regulated (161).

Common structural features found in thiazolidinedione PPARy agonists and related compounds. replace the thiazolidinedione ring. The a-substituted carboxylic acids are often highly potent, but may not be selective for PPARy. Neither (16) nor (17) has significant PPARS activity. There is a chiral center at the 5 position of the thiazolidinedione ring, but this is not configurationally stable under physiological conditions. For analogous a-substituted carboxylic acids, the PPARy activity resides in the S-enantiomer.
