Effects of metformin on lipopolysaccharide-induced depressive-like behavior in mice and its mechanisms
Effects of metformin on lipopolysaccharide-induced depressive-like behavior in mice and its mechanisms: Metformin, an AMPK activator, is a widely used medicine for type II diabetes, which has been considered to exert the anti-inflammatory effects. It has been reported that inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis of depression. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is often utilized to induce depressive-like behavior in mice with respect to recent studies. However, whether metformin alleviates...
