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 published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: To compare the ameliorative effects of ascorbic acid and Camellia sinensis extract on renal histomorphology of lead-induced nephropathic rats.
Material and methods: Twenty four rats were randomly grouped into four groups (I–IV) as follows: Normal control group I administered distilled water (5 ml/kg), Test control group II administered lead acetate (2 mg/ml), Treated group III administered lead acetate (2 mg/ml) + ascorbic acid (100 mg/kg), Treated group IV administered lead acetate (2 mg/ml) + Camellia sinensis extract (10 mg/kg). All administrations were done through oral route and lasted for 30 days.
Results: Body and renal tissue weight of study animals were significantly reduced (p 0.05) in test control relative to normal control while treated groups showed non-significant reduction. Histological examination of renal tissue showed significant prominence of histopathological features such as inflammation, necrosis and glomerular congestion in test control group while treated groups showed marked reduction.
Conclusion: According to the findings of this study, treatment with ascorbic acid or Camellia sinensis extract comparatively exert ameliorative effects on lead-induced nephropathy in Wistar rats which in turn culminates into reparative influence on their renal histomorphology.

Keywords: Ascorbic acid; Camellia sinensis; Lead-induced nephropathy; Wistar rats
