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 It is published monthly.

Aim: The aim of the study was to compare the lipid profile and oxidant/antioxidant status between pre-menopausal and post-menopausal women and to evaluate the correlations between these variables.
Material and Methods: This study included 50 healthy women, of which 21 are in pre-menopausal and 29 are post-menopausal status. This study included 50 women classified as pre-menopausal, and post-menopausal. We analyzed lipid profile in serum samples and oxidative stress in RBC samples. Oxidant status was assessed by measurement of malondialdehyde, whereas antioxidant defence was evaluated by analysis of catalase and glutathione.
Results: Compared to pre-menopausal women, triglycerides, total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels were higher and high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels were lower in post-menopausal women. However, difference was statistically significant only for triglycerides levels. The levels of oxidant/antioxidant system members did not differ between the groups.
Conclusion: Postmenopausal status is associated with dyslipidemia, however the alterations in at oxidative status level might be reduced with the use of hormone replacement therapy, or might vary inter-individually.
Keywords: Menopause; oxidative stress; antioxidant; lipid profile.
