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: Systemic inflammatory response syndrome may develop after coronary artery bypass graft surgery that performed by cardiopulmonary bypass technique. It is known that olmesartan, an angiotensin II receptor blocker, has anti-inflammatory effects. The antiinflammatory efficacy of olmesartan treatment was investigated in patients undergoing cardiopulmonary bypass.
Materials and Methods: The study included 50 patients (14 female, 36 male) between 30-80 years of age were underwent CABG surgery. Patients were randomly assigned to control (Group C) and olmesartan (Group O) gruoups. Group O were treated with a single dose of 10 mg per day; 5 days preoperatively and 35 days postoperatively, 30 mg at the operation day. Samples were taken before the induction of anesthesia (T1), 5 minutes before cross clamping (T2), 5 minutes after cross clamping (T3), after protamine infusion (T4), postoperative day 3 (T5) and postoperative day 35 (T6) for total serum levels of IL-6, IL-10 and IL-18; for h-CRP levels preoperative (T1) and postoperative day 35 (T2).
Results: Statistically significant decrease of CRP levels were observed on the postoperative 35th day in Group O (p0.05). Statistically significant decrease of IL-6 levels were observed in the Group O after protamine infusion (T4) and postoperative 3rd day (T5) (p 0.05).There was a statistically significant increase at 5 min. after the cross declamping time (T3) for IL-10 levels (p0.05).
Conclusion: Although the anti-inflammatory efficacy of olmesartan has been proven, it can be accomplished by combining it with drugs that have anti-inflammatory effects like statins or dose increasing.

Keywords: Bypass; inflammation; interleukines; olmesartan
