    Giant Mediastinal Biphasic Synovial Sarcoma – A Rare Clinical Presentation

    Mediastinal synovial sarcomas are very rare tumors. These sarcomas are challenging to treat because of its anatomic proximity to vital structures in the mediastinum, difficulty in diagnosis and high likelihood of recurrence and metastasis. We report a patient with large mediastinal biphasic synovial sarcoma and discuss the clinical presentation, pathology,…

    Homeodomain Transcription Factor Msx-2 Regulates Uterine Progenitor Cell Response to Diethylstilbestrol

    The fate of mouse uterine epithelial progenitor cells is determined between postnatal days 5 to 7. Around this critical time window, exposure to an endocrine disruptor, diethylstilbestrol (DES), can profoundly alter uterine cytodifferentiation. We have shown previously that a homeo domain transcription factor MSX-2 plays an important role in DES-responsiveness…

    Brain Uptake of Neurotherapeutics after Intranasal Delivery in Mice

    There is a growing global prevalence of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Current treatment for neurodegenerative diseases is limited due to the blood brain barrier’s ability to restrict the entry of therapeutics to the brain. In that context, direct delivery of drugs from nose to brain has gained emerging interest…

Testimonial

Paul G Mathew, Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates

It was a pleasure to publish my manuscript with the Journal of Neurology and Neurosurgery. I found the peer review process was rigorous, and helped to improve the overall quality of my manuscript without being too tedious. The editorial staff, particularly Divakar Sadam, was very responsive to all of my concerns, and usually corresponded within 24 hours of a query. I had an overall excellent experience, and I hope that the journal is indexed in PubMed in the near future.
