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: In this preliminary study, we aimed to investigate the effect of sulforaphane (SFN) warm ischemia in a non-heart beat rat liver model (NHBD).
Materials and Methods: Livers taken from NHBD 15,30,60 min after warm ischemia were stored up at University of Wisconsin solution for 5 h at 40C [cold storage (CS)] and were, then, exposed to 2 h of machine reperfusion (MRP) at 370C. In the study group, SFN 5 mg/kg was intraperitoneal given 30 min before the introduction of NHB. Firstly, we divided the rats into the control and SFN groups. Then, each group was divided into three groups (n=10 in each) including control I, II, III and SFN I, II, III groups (15-, 30-, and 60-min warm ischemia period, respectively).Control and study groups at the same time of ischemia were compared with each other in terms of lactate, AST, ALT, IL-6, TNF-α and morphologically.
Results: In the group treated with SFN, AST, ALT, TNF-α, IL-6, and lactate levels were lower, compared to the control group. Histopathologically, Bcl-2 staining intensity and percentages of staining were statistically significant, compared to the control and study groups during 15-min warm ischemia. Although not statistically significant, the intensity and percentage of staining were higher at 30 min and identical at 60 min.
Conclusion: Our study results suggest that, despite prolonged warm ischemia time, SFN can biochemically and morphologically protect the liver from the hazardous effects of ischemia reperfusion in an experimentally-controlled NHB in rats, indicating an increased utilization rate of NHBDs.
