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: While 90-95% of the adult population responds to hepatitis-B vaccination, it is known that, this rate is lower in patients with CD. In our study, determination of response rates of vaccinated celiac patients, and the affecting factors associated with vaccine responses were the aims of our investigation.
Material and Methods: The study included 280 celiac patients who applied to the polyclinic between 2015-2019 years. Demographic, anthropometric characteristics (age, gender, onset age, disease duration, smoking, body mass index(BMI), waist-hip ratios) and symptoms in patients were documented. Hepatitis B, C, delta serology were examined. The prevalence of chronic hepatitis and associated risk factors were evaluated. Hepatitis-B vaccination rates and vaccine responses were determined. The risk factors associated with the immune response were reviewed.
Results: 212 (75.7%) of the patients were female, the mean-age of the patients was 33.4±10.8 and the disease duration was 4.9±3.7 years. In 14 (5%) of the patients there were chronic viral infections, 18 (6.4%) had natural immunity, 92 (32.9%) were immunized, 58 (56.4%) were not encountered with viral infection. No significant correlation was found between the presence of chronic viral hepatitis and risk factors. 28 (30.4%) patients who had not vaccine response. It was observed that; the dietary incompatibility and absence of immunological remission were significantly higher, the BMI and the waist size were significantly lower in non-response group (P0.05).
Conclusions: Considering the mild-high prevalence of chronic viral infection in celiac patients, it is important to vaccinate these patients against infections. It is of great importance to implement re-vaccination protocol in the patients without vaccine response.
Keywords: Celiac disease; hepatitis B; vaccination.
