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: The aim of the study was to compare the pneumonia severity scoring systems (PSI, CURB-65) and inflammatory markers (CRP, CAR, NLR and PLR) in predicting community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) patients’ 3-month mortality.
Materials and Methods: This study included 113 patients (43 females, 70 males) diagnosed with CAP. Demographics, comorbidities, complete blood count, arterial blood gas, electrolytes, liver-renal functions and radiological findings were evaluated. PSI and CURB-65 were classified: PSI low risk (I-III, point ≤90); PSI moderate-high risk (IV-V, point 91≤); CURB-65; low risk (0-2) and high risk (3-5). All statistical calculations were performed with SPSS 23.0 for Windows.
Results: The mean age of the patients was 69.08 ± 16.58 and 3-month mortality rate among the patients hospitalized on admission was 22.4% (n=24). Albumin, hemoglobin, lymphocyte, PaO2 were lower; NLR and lactate were higher in non-survivors. Albumin and lactate were higher in CURB-65 (0-2) and (3-5) groups, respectively. NLR was significantly higher in PSI group (IV-V). Red cell distribution width and lactate were lower in PSI (I-III); basophil and PaO2 were significantly lower in PSI group (IV-V). CRP (AUC 0.744), PSI classification (AUC 0.72) and PSI scoring (AUC 0.746) showed higher mortality prediction.
Conclusion: Albumin, hemoglobin, lymphocyte, PaO2 were lower; NLR and lactate were higher in non-survivors. CRP and PSI score are potent predictors of 3-month mortality.
