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: Behcet’s disease (BD) is a multi-systemic disorder which shows inflammatory vasculitis characteristic with recurrent oral aphthae, eye lesions, and genital ulceration. MicroRNA’s (miRNAs) are small non-coding RNA molecules that play an important role in the regulation of various biological processes. We aimed to determine miRNAs that are thought to be associated with inflammatory processes in BD patients using colchicine in the active period.
Materials and Methods: We enrolled 24 patients with BD receiving colchicine treatment and a control group comprising 30 healthy unrelated individuals. We studied with a panel where 377 miRNAs were included in the assay.
Results: miR-20a, miR-34a, miR-197, U6snRNA, miR-205, miR-222, miR-296, miR-302a, miR-302c, and miR-372 were observed up-regulated in BD. miR-518b, miR-874 were found down-regulated within the patients. These miRNAs are known to play a role in cancer-related pathways.
Conclusion: In patients treated with colchicine, the change in the expression of these miRNA may give an idea of the effect on the progression of the disease. However, patients in the active period also require further studies to fully understand the role and mechanism of action of the drug.

Keywords: Behcet disease; colchicine; microRNA
