BACKGROUND AND AIM: This study aims to systematically analyze the effect of long-term therapy with proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) on the risk of gastric cancer.

METHODS: PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), and China biomedical literature database (CBM) were searched for studies before February 2019. We evaluated the quality of the included articles through the Newcastle-Ottawa Scale and gathered relevant data to calculate the pooled odds ratio (OR) through Stata14.0.

RESULTS: Seven relevant articles conformed to the inclusion criteria; 943 070 patients were included. The pooled OR was 2.50; 95% CI (1.74, 3.85); the subgroup analysis results showed that patients who had used PPIs for more than 36 months were most likely to develop gastric cancer, and an increased risk was observed among patients after Helicobacter pylori eradication. Noncardia gastric cancer was more likely to develop.

CONCLUSIONS: Long-term use of PPIs can possibly increase the risk of gastric cancer even among patients after H. pylori eradication; in particular, for noncardia gastric cancer, the risk increases with longer durations of PPI use. Due to the limited number of studies, more high-quality studies are required to be designed.
