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.

Aim: In this study, we wanted to investigate the oxidative stress level and some antioxidant parameters in angiography workers exposed to high dose x-ray.
Material and Methods: The study included 47 angiography workers and 50 healthy control group. Some antioxidant parameters (superoxide dismutase, catalase, and reduced glutathione) and levels of malondialdehyde, which is a marker of oxidative stress, were measured in the blood samples of all participants.
Results: There was a significant increase in oxidative stress marker MDA levels and a significant decrease in antioxidant enzyme (superoxide dismutase, catalase and reduced glutathione) levels in all individuals of the study group compared to the control group (p0.001 for all).
Conclusion: Our results indicated that oxidative stress level increased and some antioxidant enzyme levels (superoxide dismutase, catalase and decreased glutathione) decreased in angiography workers exposed to long-term high-dose ionized radiation. We have linked this to the oxidant-antioxidant balance disorder caused by increased free radicals due to ionizing radiation, as noted in the literature.

Keywords: Angiography workers; antioxidants; ionizing radiation; malondialdehyde
