Enhancing Brain Repair with Metformin (Metformin in CP)
Children with cerebral palsy who were born premature face a lifetime of motor impairments, some of which can be treated with physiotherapy. Recent findings suggest that the drug metformin could help motor recovery by recruiting stem cells in the brain to help repair injury. Here, we will evaluate whether metformin combined with physiotherapy enhances motor and thinking skills in children with cerebral palsy.
