Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is a frequent health problem. The insulin resistance and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress have been suggested to play important roles in the development and progression of NAFLD. However these processes and correlations have not fully been understood yet. Azoramide, an antidiabetic drug, has the potential for reducing insulin resistance and ER stress in obese mice. To date, there is no study on the effects of azoramide in NAFLD. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential role of azoramide on insulin resistance and ER stress in NAFLD induced mice.
