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: Adolescence is an important period of development and during this period young people are more susceptible to mental illnesses. Therefore, a comprehensive knowledge of the factors that mediate stress response can help developing our understanding of these diseases. The aim of this study is to examine the activity of hypothalamo–pituitary–adrenal axis and determine factors affecting this activity in adolescents.
Material and Methods: The adolescents between the ages of 14 and 17, who participated in the official amateur tennis tournament, were included in the study. The data form, including questions for the assessment of the stress level and sociodemographic variables was filled. Then, salivary cortisol levels were measured before (-5 minutes) and after (+5 minutes) the first match of the official tennis tournament.
Results: The mean salivary cortisol levels were 40.8±53.8 ng/ml, before the game and 98.8±150.5 ng/ml, after the game (p=0.008). The salivary cortisol levels were statistically higher, after the game, in males, those who won, and those who felt anxious compared the before.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that salivary cortisol level can be used in the assessment of stress response in adolescents and various factors such as gender, mood, and state of winning are effective on cortisol response.

Keywords: Adolescent; hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal axis; salivary cortisol; stress; tennis; tournament
