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: The most important goal in the treatment of Diabetes Mellitus is to protect patients from micro and macro complications. Inflammatory cytokines and betatrophin have been reported to play a role in diabetic micro and macro complications. This study aimed to investigate the effect of serum Betatrophin, TNF-α and IL-6 levels on diabetic micro and macro complications in patients with type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.

Materials and Methods: This case-control study was conducted with 91 type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM) patients between January-December 2018. Case series with 91 patients divided into three groups were included; 31 T2DM patients without diabetic complications (group 1=control), 30 patients with diabetic microvascular complications (group 2) and 30 patients with diabetic macrovasculer complications (group 3). Blood was collected to evaluate biochemical parameters, TNF-α, IL-6 and betatrophin.
Results: Betatrophin level was high in patients with renitopathy (p=0.042) and diabetic foot (p=0.036). TNF-α levels were higher in patients with both microvascular and macrovascular complications compared to the control group (p0.001). IL-6 levels were increased only in the group with macrovascular complications (p=0.027).
Conclusion: Betatrophin, TNF-α and IL-6 were associated with diabetic complications. Larger studies are warranted to establish the real impact of this finding.

Keywords: Betatrophin; diabetes mellitus; IL-6; TNF-α; Type 2/complications
