Application Number:09/722,597
Patent Litigation and PTAB cases: See patent lawsuits and PTAB cases for patent 6,271,243
Patent Claims: 1. A method for reducing the side effects of active components administered to a diabetic patient, which comprises administering to said patient a therapeutically effective amount of a compound represented by the formula: ##STR8##

wherein R' represents an optionally substituted hydrocarbon or heterocyclic group; Y represents a group represented by --CO--, --CH(OH)-- or --NR.sup.3 -- wherein R.sup.3 represents an optionally substituted alkyl group; m is 0 or 1; n is 0, 1 or 2; X represents CH or N; A represents a bond or a C.sub.1-7 divalent aliphatic hydrocarbon group; Q represents an oxygen atom or sulfur atom; R.sup.1 represents hydrogen atom or an alkyl group; ring E may optionally have 1 to 4 further substituents, and the substituents may optionally be combined with R.sup.1 to form a ring; L and M respectively represent a hydrogen atom, or L and M may optionally be combined with each other to form a bond; with a proviso that R' does not represent benzopyranyl group when m and n are 0, X represents CH, A represents a bond, Q represents sulfur atom, R.sup.1, L and M represent hydrogen atoms and ring E does not have further substituents; or a pharmacologically acceptable salt thereof, in combination with an insulin preparation as said active components.

2. The method according to claim 1, wherein the compound represented by the formula (II) is the compound represented by the formula: ##STR9##

3. The method according to claim 1, wherein the compound represented by the formula (II) is pioglitazone or its pharmacologically acceptable salts.

4. The method according to claim 1, wherein the insulin preparation is a human insulin preparation.

5. The method according to claim 1, wherein the compound represented by the formula (II) is 5-[[4-[2-(methyl-2-pyridylamino)ethoxy]phenyl]methyl-2,4-thiazolidinedione or its pharmacologically acceptable salts.

6. The method according to claim 1, wherein R' is an optionally substituted heterocyclic group.

7.
