摘要

Background: Helicobacter pylori (HP) can induce epithelial cells and intestinal metaplasia with genetic damage that makes them highly susceptible to the development of gastric cancer (GC). Materials and Methods: Between 2005 and 2010, 356 patients with gastric cancer who received curative surgery were enrolled. Analysis of HP, Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection, PIK3CA amplification, and mutation analysis of 68 mutations in eight genes using a mass spectrometric single-nucleotide polymorphism genotyping technology was conducted. The clinicopathological characteristics of patients with or without HP infection were compared. Results: Among the 356 patients, 185 (52.0%) had HP infection. For intestinal-type GC, patients with HP infection were more likely to be younger and had fewer PI3K/AKT pathway genetic mutations than those without HP infection. For diffuse-type GC, patients with HP infection were characterized by less male predominance, less lymphoid stroma, fewer microsatellite instability-high tumors, and fewer PI3K/AKT pathway genetic mutations than those without HP infection. Patients with HP infection had less tumor recurrence and a better 5-year overall survival (87.7% vs. 73.9%, p =.012) and disease-free survival (64.1% vs. 51.3%, p =.013) than those without HP infection, especially for intestinal-type GC. For EBV-negative GC, patients with HP infection had fewer PI3K/AKT pathway mutations and a better 5-year overall survival and disease-free survival than those without HP infection. Multivariate analysis demonstrated that HP infection was an independent prognostic factor regarding overall survival and disease-free survival. Conclusion: Patients with GC with HP infection were associated with fewer PI3K/AKT pathway genetic mutations and better survival than those without HP infection, especially for EBV-negative and intestinal-type GC. Implications for Practice: Patients with gastric cancer with Helicobacter pylori (HP) infection had fewer PI3K/AKT pathway genetic mutations, less tumor recurrence, and better survival than those without HP infection, especially for Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-negative and intestinal-type gastric cancer. HP infection is an independent prognostic factor regarding overall survival and disease-free survival. Future in vivo and in vitro studies of the correlation among HP infection, PI3K/AKT pathway, and EBV infection in gastric cancer are required.
