Aim: To examine whether Helicobacter pylori induces structural chromosomal aberrations, such as loss of heterozygosity (LOH) and microsatellite instability (MSI) in the infected gastric mucosa. Methods: Subjects were 13 patients with H. pylori-positive and 9 with H. pylori-negative gastric cancer and 20 patients with H. pylori-positive and 4 patients with H. pylori-negative chronic gastritis. Gastric mucosal tissues were endoscopically sampled from each subject. Each sample was checked for structural chromosomal aberrations (LOH and MSI) by PCR and microsatellite analysis, using a total of 31 primers corresponding to the regions containing the major genes of chromosomes 1q, 5q, 7q, 17p, 17q, 18q and 21q. Results: All tissue samples obtained from cancer-affected regions of the stomach had structural chromosomal aberrations (LOH or MSI), irrespective of H. pylori infection. The degree of structural chromosomal aberration was greater in poorly differentiated than well-differentiated adenocarcinoma. In addition, structural chromosomal aberrations were also found in a few samples obtained from the chronic atrophic gastritis group, irrespective of H. pylori infection. Conclusions: It seems unlikely that H. pylori serves as a direct promoter of gastric cancer, and H. pylori-positive chronic gastritis may not always be a precancerous state.
