Abstract
Although targeted therapy for receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) of advanced gastric cancers (AGCs) has been in the spotlight, guidelines for the identification of RTK-amplified gastric cancers (RA-GCs) have not been established. In this study, we investigate clinicopathologic characteristics of RA-GCs and propose a screening algorithm for their identification. We performed immunohistochemistry (IHC) for MLH1, MSH2, PMS2, MSH6, key RTKs (EGFR, HER2, MET), and p53, in situ hybridization for Epstein-Barr virus encoding RNA, and silver in situ hybridization (SISH) for EGFR, HER2, and MET using tissue microarrays of 993 AGCs. On IHC, 157 (15.8%) 61, (6.15%), and 85 (8.56%) out of 993 cases scored 2+ or 3+ for EGFR, HER2, and MET, respectively. On SISH, 31.2% (49/157), 80.3% (49/61), and 30.6% (26/85) of 2+ or 3+ cases on IHC showed amplification of the corresponding genes. Of the 993 cases, 104 were classified as RA-GCs. RA-GC status correlated with older age (P < 0.001), differentiated histology (P = 0.001), intestinal or mixed type by Lauren classification (P < 0.001), lymphovascular invasion (P = 0.026), and mutant-pattern of p53 (P < 0.001). The cases were divided into four subgroups using two classification systems, putative molecular classification and histologic-molecular classification, based on Lauren classification, IHC, and SISH results. The histologic-molecular classification showed higher sensitivity for identification of RA-GCs and predicted patient prognosis better than the putative molecular classification. In conclusion, RA-GCs show unique clinicopathologic features. The proposed algorithm based on histologic-molecular classification can be applied to select candidates for genetic examination and targeted therapy.
