Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study was to evaluate new and current inflammatory markers in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and to clarify the role of these markers in the etiopathogenesis of PCOS.
Material and Methods: This retrospective study included 97 women with PCOS and 124 body mass index-matched controls without PCOS. The parameters examined as new and current markers in both groups were the monocyte-to-high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) ratio, high sensitivity C-reactive protein/ albumin ratio, systemic immune-inflammation index, inflammatory prognostic index, prognostic nutritional index, white blood cell count, mean platelet volume, platelet distribution width, plateletcrit, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, triglycerides to HDL-C ratio and the lipid accumulation product index.
Results: No significant difference was found between the PCOS and control group in respect of inflammatory markers. The age and follicle-stimulating hormone values of PCOS patients were found to be lower than those of the control group. Luteinizing hormone, free androgen index, insulin and the homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance values of PCOS patients were significantly higher than those of the control group.
Conclusion: In terms of inflammatory parameters, no significant difference was determined between patients with PCOS and the control group. Chronic inflammation may be multifactorial in PCOS and there is a need for studies with larger sample sizes to be able to explain the exact role of inflammatory markers in PCOS etiology.
Keywords: Polycystic ovary syndrome; inflammation; inflammatory markers
