Abstract It is now well established that cancer is a genetic disease and that somatic mutations of oncogenes and tumour suppressor genes are the initiators of the carcinogenic process. The phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase signalling pathway has previously been implicated in tumorigenesis, and evidence over the past year suggests a pivotal role for the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase catalytic subunit, PIK3CA, in human cancers. In this review, we analyse recent reports describing PIK3CA mutations in a variety of human malignancies, and discuss their possible implications for diagnosis and therapy.
