Dr. Mostafa El Khashab and Dr. Arno Fried Featured Contributors New Scholarly Articles

Advanced Neurosurgery Associates is pleased to announce two scholarly articles containing contributions from Dr. Mostafa El Khashab, adding to his extensive list of publications in well-respected peer-reviewed journals and books in the field of neurosciences.

These articles compile extensive research and data to discuss the rapidly changing study of the effectiveness of the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease, as well as the length of hospitalization for children who suffer from rhinosinusitis.

Testing alternatives: the use of adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells to slow neurodegeneration in a rat model of Parkinson’s disease,’ is featured in the journal ‘Molecular Biology Reports: An International Journal on Molecular and Cellular Biology.’ The article features contributions from Dr. El Khasab as well as neurological experts from Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The focus of the article is the diminishing effectiveness of anti-Parkinson treatment and the investigation of “the effect of adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells” in rat models as opposed to an anti-Parkinson drug. The final publication is available at link.springer.com.

In addition, both Dr. El Khasab and ANA’s own Dr. Arno Fried are contributors to ‘Intracranial complications of pediatric rhinosinusitis: Identifying risk factors and interventions affecting length of hospitalization,’ which also includes contributions from several other neurosurgical experts throughout New Jersey. This article shares the examination of the charts of 12 children hospitalized for intracranial complications of rhinosinusitis and provides results regarding their complications, treatments and the details of their recovery by their time of discharge. This study is featured in the “International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology.”
