Use of metformin and outcome of patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma - pooled analysis.


Al Musella's Comments: (This is his personal views and are not necessarily the views of the Musella Foundation!)

 This study did not show a significant imporvement in outcomes when using Metformin.  Metformin is a drug used to control high blood glucose in diabetics but has been used off label to try to treat cancers including brain tumors.  More research needs to be done before we write this off.
