摘要

Helicobacter pylori eradication can reverse gastric intestinal metaplasia (IM) in some but not all patients. H. pylori induces high levels of nuclear β-catenin staining in IM tissues, as well as overexpression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2). This study investigated whether the Wnt/β-catenin pathway plays a role in IM regression following H. pylori eradication. Sixty-five H. pylori-infected patients with IM who had achieved successful H. pylori eradication provided paired gastric samples before and after eradication to analyse the persistence of IM, and to assess COX-2 and nuclear β-catenin expression. The host genotypes of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the COX-2, β-catenin (CTNNB1) and adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) genes were analysed. In addition, expression of β-catenin, E-cadherin and phosphorylated and unphosphorylated glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSK-3β) in cell lines challenged with H. pylori isolates from patients with and without IM persistence was compared by immunoanalysis. After a mean 33.9-month follow-up after H. pylori eradication, 44 patients (67.7 %) with IM persistence had a higher rate of high-level nuclear β-catenin expression in IM tissue than those without IM persistence (P=0.008). The patients with IM persistence had a higher rate of AA, GG and AA APC SNP genotypes at positions 4479, 5268 and 5465, respectively, than the patients without IM persistence (P=0.022). The H. pylori isolates from the patients with IM regression after H. pylori eradication induced more phospho-GSK-3β in AGS cells than isolates from patients with IM persistence (P=0.011). It is likely that interactions with H. pylori and the patient's Wnt/β-catenin genetic predisposition determine the outcome of IM persistence following H. pylori eradication.
