1 Interacção bactéria-hospedeiro na cancerização humana Infecção por Helicobacter pylori e cancro gástrico Céu Figueiredo

2 Gastric carcinogenesis
H. pylori Normal Gastric Mucosa Chronic Superficial Gastritis Host susceptibility IL1B, IL1RN, TNFA genotypes H. pylori strain virulence vacA s1m1, cagA+ Gastric Carcinoma Machado JC et al, Gastroenterology 2001 Machado JC et al, Gastroenterology 2003 Figueiredo C et al, Am J Pathol 2001 Figueiredo C et al, J Natl Cancer Inst 2002

3 H. pylori cagA and cag pathogenicity island (cag PAI)
cagA is part of a kb chromosomal region, the cag PAI, present in some but not all H. pylori strains The cag PAI encodes a type IV secretion system (T4SS) responsible for the translocation of bacterial molecules into the host cell cagA positive H. pylori strains are associated with more severe histopathologic features of chronic gastritis and increase the risk for gastric carcinoma development cag PAI HP0547 cagA HP0520 Montecucco & Rappuoli, Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol 2001

4 Role of H. pylori virulence factors on epithelial cell responses and signaling pathways relevant to gastric carcinoma development Invasion Assays Collagen type I gel Cells + H. pylori Matrigel Collagen type I

5 To elucidate the effect of H. pylori on cell invasion
* * No. invasive cells ** ** * Significantly different from untreated cells ** Significantly different from cells infected with H. pylori 60190wt H. pylori strains containing a functional cag pathogenicity island-encoded type IV secretion system (T4SS) stimulate gastric cancer cell invasion

6 To elucidate the signaling pathways involved in H
To elucidate the signaling pathways involved in H. pylori-induced cell invasion Control 26695 60190 * ** No. invasive cells AGS + non-silenc. siRNA AGS + siRNA c-Met * Significantly different from untreated cells ** Significantly different from cells transfected with non-silencing siRNA * Invasion index ** * Significantly different from untreated cells ** Significantly different from cells infected with H. pylori 26695 H. pylori strains containing a functional T4SS stimulate gastric cancer cell invasion, through a c-Met dependent signaling pathway

7 To elucidate the signaling pathways involved in H
To elucidate the signaling pathways involved in H. pylori-induced cell invasion H. pylori strains containing a functional T4SS stimulate gastric cancer cell invasion, through a c-Met dependent signaling pathway

8 To elucidate the signaling pathways involved in H
To elucidate the signaling pathways involved in H. pylori-induced cell invasion * Significantly different from untreated cells ** Significantly different from cells infected with H. pylori 60190wt H. pylori strains containing a functional T4SS stimulate gastric cancer cell invasion, through a c-Met dependent signaling pathway, and involving an increase in MMP2 and MMP9 activity

9 Conclusions H. pylori strains containing a functional T4SS stimulate gastric cancer cell invasion, through a c-Met dependent signaling pathway, and involving an increase in MMP2 and MMP9 activity These findings may implicate H. pylori at later stages of gastric carcinogenesis If this is true, H. pylori eradication treatment should also be given to patients with dysplasia and early cancer
