Abstract BACKGROUND: An accurate tool for human papillomavirus (HPV) typing is important both for management of patients with HPV infection and for surveillance studies. OBJECTIVES: Design and evaluation of an HPV typing method based on 454 next generation sequencing (NGS) technology. STUDY DESIGN: Development of an HPV typing method based on 454 NGS of HPV L1 amplicons generated with MY09/11-based primers. Evaluation of the NGS method in control samples and in a panel of cervical cytological samples. Comparison of the NGS typing method with cycle sequencing and with the reverse hybridization-based INNO-LiPA HPV Genotyping Extra assay (LiPA). RESULTS: In control samples carrying mixtures of HPV16 and HPV18 DNA, the NGS method could reliably detect genotype sequences occurring at a frequency of 1% in multiple infections with a sensitivity of 100 genome equivalents/μL. In cervical cytology samples, comparison with cycle sequencing demonstrated accuracy of HPV typing by NGS. The NGS method had however lower sensitivity for some HPV types than LiPA, conceivably due to the poor sensitivity of the MY09/11-based primers. At variance, LiPA could not detect HPV types which were present in low proportion in multiple infections (<10% of HPV reads obtained by NGS). In addition, NGS allowed identifying the presence of different variants of the same HPV type in a specimen. CONCLUSIONS: NGS is a promising method for HPV typing because of its high sensitivity in multiple infection and its potential ability to detect a broad spectrum of HPV types, subtypes, and variants.

Evaluation of the NGS method in control samples and in a panel of cervical cytological samples. Comparison of the NGS typing method with cycle sequencing and with the reverse hybridization-based INNO-LiPA HPV Genotyping Extra assay (LiPA). RESULTS: In control samples carrying mixtures of HPV16 and HPV18 DNA, the NGS method could reliably detect genotype sequences occurring at a frequency of 1% in multiple infections with a sensitivity of 100 genome equivalents/μL.
