Objective: Topical cytidine-5'-diphosphocholine (CDP-choline) improves functional recovery and promotes nerve regeneration in sciatic nerve injury in rats. The aims of this study were to test whether systemic treatment with CDP-choline was effective in improving the recovery of injured sciatic nerve, and to determine whether the cytidine and/or choline moieties of CDP-choline contribute to its beneficial actions.
