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: Cytokines secreted by T helper cell subgroups are considered to play chief roles in the complex pathobiology of psoriasis. Herein, we aimed to reveal the effects of anti- and pro-inflammatory cytokines on the pathobiology of psoriasis disease and the correlation of these cytokines with severity of psoriasis.
Materials and Methods: Thirty-seven individuals diagnosed with psoriasis and 37 healthy control subjects were enrolled for the study. The levels of Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFα), Soluble CD40 ligand (sCD40L), Interferon gamma (IFNγ) and Interleukin (IL) 1β, IL4, IL6, IL10, IL17F, IL17A, IL21, IL22, IL23, IL25, IL31, IL33 were determined by the Luminex method.
Results: The IL6, IFNγ, TNFα, sCD40L, IL17F, IL17A, IL23, IL25, and IL31 levels were found to be markedly advanced in individuals with psoriasis in contrast to the control group (p=0.003, p=0.02, p0.001, p=0.02, p=0.03, p=0.003, p=0.04, p=0.04, and p0.05).
Conclusion: IFNγ, IL6, TNFα, sCD40L, IL17F, IL17A, IL23, IL31, IL25 and inflammatory markers were markedly advanced in patients with psoriasis, strongly supporting the notion that these cytokines are involved in the pathobiology of psoriasis disease. In conclusion, findings of the present study suggest that understanding of the functions of these cytokines in the complex pathogenesis of psoriasis disease is of great interest for the future therapeutic intervention.
