Background: DNA isolation from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue appears to be problematic due to degradation caused by fixative. Our aim was to investigate if the isolated genomic DNA from archival plasma/serum, combined with multiple strand displacement amplification (MDA) can be used for genotyping. Methods: Nine archival plasma/serum samples and freshly frozen gastric biopsies from the same nine H. pylori-infected subjects were used for DNA isolation. Subsequently, MDA-DNA derived from the plasma/serum samples and DNA isolated from the antrum biopsies were analyzed by PCR amplification and pyrosequencing for the presence of interleukin-1beta gene (IL-1B) single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP). In addition, Southern blot and pyrosequencing analysis of H. pylori-specific PCR amplicons were performed. Results: IL-1B SNP profiles obtained from the plasma/serum MDA-DNA and antrum biopsy DNA were identical. A C/C genotype was observed in 7 of 9 samples, and 2 of 9 revealed a C/T genotype for IL-1B - 511. Similarly, 7 of 9 had a T/T, and 2 of 9 had a C/T genotype for IL-1B - 31, 4 of 9 had a C/C, 4 of 9 had a C/T, and 1 of 9 had a T/T genotype, respectively, for IL-1B + 3954. Moreover, pyrosequencing analysis revealed the presence of H. pylori 26695 and J99-like 16S rDNA variable V3 region sequence motifs in the antrum biopsies but not in the plasma/serum samples. Conclusions: We conclude that MDA combined with pyrosequencing enables a rapid and accurate molecular typing of cytokine single nucleotide polymorphisms from archival plasma/serum samples. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.
