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: It is considered that a relationship exist between migraine and neurogenic inflammation. High levels of tumor necrosis factor, interleukin-6 and C-reactive protein were determined in the studies. The cytoprotective and antioxidant effect of bilirubin has been shown. Lower serum bilirubin levels have been shown some diseases. For all that, there is no consensus in the results. Our purpose in this study is to determine the relationship between migraine and inflammation markers like erythrocyte sedimentation rate, C-reactive protein , bilirubin.
Material and Methods: The study included 50 migraine patients and 40 healthy individuals as a control group. Erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein, bilirubin parameters, aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase were recorded.
Results: Erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein  were significantly higher in migraine group. Bilirubin parameters and aspartate aminotransferase , alanine aminotransferase  values were similar.
Conclusion: Higher serum inflammatory markers support the role of inflammation in migraine pathogenesis. For bilirubin levels larger cross- sectional studies are needed.
Keywords: Migraine; inflammation; C-reactive protein; erythrocyte sedimentation rate
