Background: CDP-choline (cytidine-5'-diphosphocholine) improves functional recovery, promotes nerve regeneration, and decreases perineural scarring in rat peripheral nerve injury. The aim of the present study was to investigate the mechanism of action of CDPcholine with regard to matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) activity in the rat-transected sciatic nerve injury model.
