Cytidine 5'-diphosphocholine (CDP-choline) is a naturally occurring precurser of phosphatidylcholine that has been shown to prevent post-necrotic lesion phospholipid destruction by inhibiting activation of phopholipase A2 (PLA2) at 200 mg/kg. CDP-choline has been shown to induce dopamine and acetylcholine receptor densities. Other studies have shown neural and non-neural cholinergic activity increase. Additionally CDP-choline has been noted to potentially increase the stimulated release of thyroid stimulating hormone, growth hormone, and luteinizing hormone.
