Progress on the study of fibroblast growth factors as novel therapeutics in post-stroke cognitive impairment
Post-stroke cognitive impairment (PSCI) is one of the most common complications after stroke, which severely affects the daily life abilities and social function of patients. Fibroblast growth factor (FGF), as a regulator of homeostasis, participates in the regulation of cell metabolism and hormone secretion, and can increase cerebral blood flow and promote nerve repair which improves PSCI. Here, we will conduct a review on the typing, characteristics, and mechanism of action of FGF to further understand its function and mechanism in PSCI.
