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: This study aimed to investigate neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and mean platelet volume (MPV) for predicting colorectal cancer (CRC).
Material and Methods: We investigated retrospectively patients who underwent colonoscopy. The study consisted of 75 patients with CRC and 91 study participants with normal colonoscopy as control group, and MPV and NLR were compared between groups. MPV and NLR were also investigated for tumor stage and metastasis.
Results: Among the CRC patients the mean NLR value (3.09 vs 2.26) and PLT count (287080 vs 251857) were significantly higher, whereas the mean MPV (9.62 vs 10.68 fL) and hemoglobin level (11.62 vs 14.18 g/dl) were significantly lower in the CRC group. WBC count was not significantly different between the groups. Mean NLR in metastatic patients and non-metastatic patients were 3.56 and 2.73, respectively (p:0.01).
Conclusion: We showed that high NLR and low MPV are associated with CRC. Elevated NLR is related with presence of CRC and it can be used for risk prediction. Although we found lower MPV levels, conflicting results about MPV in CRC prevents it from using as a marker in CRC.

Keywords: Colon polyp; colonoscopy; colorectal cancer; mean platelet volume; metastasis; neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio
