We studied the genotype distribution of cervical human papillomavirus (HPV) infections in an age-stratified sample of 262 women in Mozambique using the PGMYO9-PGMY11 primer system in a reverse line-blot strip-based assay with high sensitivity in type-specific amplification. Despite the low precision of the estimates, we found that HPV-16 was not the dominant type. Instead, HPV 35 was the most commonly identified genotype among HPV-positive women (16/96 [17%]) and women with cervical neoplasia… CONTINUE READING
