Abstract

Metformin is a popular anti-diabetic drug currently being explored for its role in cancer and gut microbiome amongst other areas. Recently, Adak T et al. explicatively reviewed metformin's effects as an anti-cancer drug and a gut microbiome modulator. We feel that the authors have not adequately addressed some of the key concerns around metformin in their report and in this correspondence, we seek to add some of the issues that need to be addressed by researchers.
