Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) belongs to the nuclear receptor superfamily of PPARs (PPARα, PPARβ/δ, PPARγ). Numerous studies have concentrated on the key role of PPARs in inflammation and a variety of cancers which include prostate, breast, glioblastoma, neuroblastoma, pancreatic, hepatic, leukemia, and bladder and thyroid tumors. This review, specifically deals with anti-tumor and tumorigenicity effects of PPARγ and its natural and synthetic agonists including Troglitazone, Cladosporol A, B, 15-Deoxi-Δ-Prostaglondin J2 (15-d-PGJ2), Ciglitazon, docosahexaenoic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid Alpha-eleostreac acid, Amorfrutin C, Sphingosine 1-phosphate, Evodiamine, Excavatolide B vs respected antagonists as GW9662, bisphenol-A-diglycidyl-ether.
