Chronic metformin treatment improves post-stroke functional recovery in mice subjected to experimental stroke. This recovery occurred in parallel with enhanced VEGF expression and reduced glial scar formation. There was a significant increase in neovascularization of peri-ischemic tissue. Using genetically engineered AMPK α2 knock-out mice we confirmed that the beneficial effects of metformin are mediated via AMPK signaling.
