Dear Annals of Medical Research Readers

As of the end of March 2021, I have started to work as Chief Editor at Annals of Medical Research. Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 28 years.  Our Journal, which is online as an open access journal with monthly free access, is being scanned in many national and international indexes (ULAKBIM TR Dizin, Turkish Medline, EBSCO, Google Scholar, etc.). I would like to thank the Editors before me who contributed to this level. Our primary goal is to ensure the maintenance of this good state of the journal and to ensure that it is scanned in prestigious international indexes (Pubmed Central, SCI-Expended, etc.). In order to achieve these goals, it depends on the original research articles that can be cited and the articles published in our Journal to be cited sufficiently in other international journals. The contributions of our readers, reviewers and authors in achieving this goal are of great importance.

I hope to announce the news that we have reached our goals as soon as possible.

Aim: To investigate markers of sepsis/inflammation in twin neonates according to placental, demographic, neonatal, and twin-related complications.
Materials and Methods: In this retrospective study, we compared these parameters in twins with suspected sepsis for whom laboratory data on infection markers were available on the first postnatal day. Sepsis was later ruled out in all the neonates. After obtaining institutional ethics committee approval, twin pairs who were admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit of Hacettepe University IhsanDogramacı Children's Hospital between 2005 and 2017 were screened for inclusion. Data on the twins’ sepsis markers, complete blood counts, immature to total neutrophil (I/T) ratios, procalcitonin and CRP levels, and blood culture results in the first 24 h of life were recorded.
Results: In total, 194 twin pairs (388 neonates) were included in the study. Of the 194 twin pairs, 50 were monochorionic twins (25.8 %), and the remaining 144 (74.2 %) were dichorionic twins. Monochorionic and dichorionic twins, twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome with twins and discordant twins showed no significant differences in I/T ratio, procalcitonin, or CRP values in the first 24 h (p>0.05).
Conclusion: Based on our findings, chorionicity (monochorionic/dichorionic placenta), twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, and size discordance were not related to any significant differences in the CRP level, procalcitonin level, or I/T ratio.

Keywords: C-reactive protein (CRP); dichorionic twin; monochorionic twin; newborn; procalcitonin
