Validation of a diagnostic microarray for human papillomavirus: coverage of 102 genotypes.
ABSTRACT Papillomaviruses have been implicated in a variety of human diseases ranging from common warts to invasive carcinoma of the anogenital mucosa. Existing assays for genotyping human papillomavirus are restricted to a small number of types. Here, we present a comprehensive, accurate microarray strategy for detection and genotyping of 102 human papillomavirus types and validate its use in a panel of 91 anal swabs. This array has equal performance to traditional dot blot analysis with the benefits of added genotype coverage and the ability to calibrate readout over a range of sensitivity or specificity values.

ABSTRACT: A pair of degenerate PCR primers (FAP59/64) was designed from two relatively conserved regions of the L1 open reading frame of most human papillomaviruses (HPV). The size of the generated amplicon was about 480 bp. PCR using these primers was found capable of amplifying DNA from 87% (65/75) of the HPV types tested, its sensitivity being 1-10 copies for HPV-5, -20 and -30 clones. HPV was found in 63% (5/8) of tumour samples and in 63% (5/8) of normal skin biopsies from patients with various cutaneous tumours. HPV-5, HPV-8, HPV-12, HPVvs20-4 and six putatively novel HPV types were identified. No correlation was found to exist between specific HPV and tumour types. Skin surface swab samples from one or more sites on three of four healthy volunteers were found to contain HPV, types 12 and 49 being identified, as well as eight novel HPV types, two of which were also found among the patients. In all, HPV was detected in 75% (9/12) of those tested, five HPV types and 12 novel candidate types being identified, and 37% (7/19) of HPV-positive samples were found to manifest more than one HPV type. All the HPV detected manifested high degrees of nucleotide sequence similarity with HPV types associated with skin lesions and epidermodysplasia verruciformis. The overall HPV finding in the skin samples was 50% (20/40) using the FAP primers as compared to 18% (7/40) using another PCR test designed for skin types. The results thus suggest the new method to be sensitive and generally applicable for detecting cutaneous HPV.Journal of General Virology 10/1999; 80 ( Pt 9):2437-43. · 3.13 Impact Factor

ABSTRACT: Typing of human papillomaviruses (HPV) by DNA hybridization procedures, such as reverse line blot (RLB) assay, is sensitive and well validated. However, the application of these assays to high-throughput analyses is limited. Here, we describe the development of multiplex human papillomavirus genotyping (MPG), a quantitative and sensitive high-throughput procedure for the identification of multiple high- and low-risk genital HPV genotypes in a single reaction. MPG is based on the amplification of HPV DNA by a general primer PCR (GP5+/6+) and the subsequent detection of the products with type-specific oligonucleotide probes coupled to fluorescence-labeled polystyrene beads (Luminex suspension array technology). Up to 100 different HPV types can be detected simultaneously with MPG, and the method is fast and labor saving. We detected all 22 HPV types examined with high specificity and reproducibility (the median interplate coefficient of variation was below 10%). Detection limits for the different HPV types varied between 100 and 800 pg of PCR products. We compared the performance of MPG to an established RLB assay on GP5+/6+-PCR products derived from 94 clinical samples. The evaluation showed an excellent agreement (kappa = 0.922) but also indicated a higher sensitivity of MPG. In conclusion, MPG appears to be highly suitable for large-scale epidemiological studies and vaccination trials as well as for routine diagnostic purposes.Journal of Clinical Microbiology 03/2006; 44(2):504-12. · 4.07 Impact Factor

Papillomaviruses have been implicated in a variety of human diseases ranging from common warts to invasive carcinoma of
the anogenital mucosa. Existing assays for genotyping human papillomavirus are restricted to a small number of types. Here,
we present a comprehensive, accurate microarray strategy for detection and genotyping of 102 human papillomavirus types and
validate its use in a panel of 91 anal swabs. This array has equal performance to traditional dot blot analysis with the benefits of
added genotype coverage and the ability to calibrate readout over a range of sensitivity or specificity values.
Papillomaviruses are a group of nonenveloped, epithelio-
tropic DNA viruses that infect the skin and mucous mem-
branes of humans and animals. There are over 100 different
human papillomaviruses (HPV), which are associated with
disease of the skin, mucous membranes, and aerodigestive
tract. HPV infection leads to lesions ranging from common
and genital warts to laryngeal papillomatosis, to epithelial
cancers, particularly cervical carcinoma and a subset of head
and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). Detection of
papillomavirus is usually based on molecular assays for viral
nucleic acid .
papillomaviridae. The HPVs fall into five genera: alphapapil-
lomavirus(α-PV), betapapillomavirus(β-PV), gammapapil-
lomavirus (γ-PV), mupapillomavirus (μ-PV), and nupapil-
lomavirus (ν-PV). The mucosal α-PV are the best described,
due to their association with genital malignancy. There are
thirteen types of high-risk mucosal α-PV associated with
cervical and anal intraepithelial neoplasia: 16, 18, 31, 33,
35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, and 68. It has recently been
recommended that HPV 66 be added to this high-risk group
. HPV testing is becoming increasingly important as a
screening tool, in combination with cytology, for HPV-
associated neoplasia [3, 4].
Most commercial assays for alphapapillomaviruses are
limited to the high-risk types, which are relevant for use in
the clinical setting but provide limited information in the
research setting. The current FDA-approved tests for HPV
are the DigeneHybrid Capture 2 (HC2)test and the Cervista
HPV16/18 and HR test. HC2 combines antibody capture
and chemiluminescent signal detection to detect 13 high-
risk HPV types (Digene Corporation, Gaithersburg, Md,
USA), while the Cervista HR uses invader chemistry to
detect 14 high risk types (Hologic, Inc., Bedford, Mass,
USA) . While both of these assays have good sensitivity
and specificity for cervical neoplasia, neither specifically
genotypes the HPV infection.
There are currently no genotyping assays that cover mul-
tiple HPV genera. The majority of laboratory tests use
PCR amplification with degenerate or multiplex primer sets
2Journal of Nucleic Acids
followed by genotype readout with sequencing or blot, or
bead-based Multiplexing [6–13]. A number of groups have
developed microarray strategies for detection of HPV, but
these have been limited to targeted PCR and array readout
of a specific subset of HPV types [14–23].
The obstacle to a comprehensive detection strategy is
the sequence diversity of HPVs. Standard PCR assays are
sensitive, butit is difficult to design primers to detect a broad
range ofpapillomavirus types. Here,we present a microarray
strategy for the detection and genotyping of 102 HPV types
representing all genera and validate its use in a large panel of
anal swabs from an HPV cohort study.
2.1. Sample Material. Ninety-one samples were assayed,
drawn from a previously reported cohort study of HPV
infection in the anal canal of homosexual and bisexual
men . The study was approved by the University of
California, San Francisco Committee on Human Research,
and informed consent was obtained from all subjects. As
reported in that study, all samples were typed for HPV with
MY09/MY11 consensus HPV-L1 primers  followed by dot
blot with type-specific biotinylated probes for HPV types 6,
11, 16, 18, 26, 31, 32, 33, 35, 39, 40, 45, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55,
56, 58, 59, 61, 66, 68, 69, 70, 73, 82 variant, 83, and 84,
as well as the following 10 HPV types together in a probe
mixture: 2, 13, 34, 42, 57, 62, 64, 67, 72, and 82 . These
samples were drawn from a population with more multiplic-
ity of types than a typical cervical sample set from healthy
2.2. Array Design. 60nt oligonucleotide probes were de-
genomes listed in GenBank on January 6, 2009 (see Supple-
mentary File 1 in Supplementary Material available online
at doi: 10.406/2011/756905). Genotype-specific probes were
designed using ArrayOligoSelector , a design pack-
age that addresses several design considerations including
uniqueness, sequence complexity, self-annealing as a mea-
sure of secondary structure, and GC content (http://deri-
silab.ucsf.edu/index.php?page=software).Ten probes were
selected for each genome with a target GC content of 30%
and a maximum binding energy cutoff of −45kcal/mol.
Sequences containing AT regions longer than 20bp and less
than 10% of non-AT nucleotides were excluded from probe
selection. A second set of genotype-specific probes were
generatedusing a tiling strategy, with an offset of20nt across
region traditionally used for genotyping. These probes were
their source HPV species and a predicted binding energy
of >−10kcal/mol against all other HPV species. All probes
were filtered against nonspecific binding to the human
Additional probes were designed to cover conserved re-
gions in each genus using a variation on a previously de-
scribed strategy . Each fully sequenced genome was
divided into overlapping 60nt segments offset by 30nt, and
a pairwise nucleotide BLAST  was performed between
each potential probe and each viral genome. The top-
ranked probe was selected, and the process was repeated
iteratively on each sequence lacking significant homology to
the selected probe until each genome was covered by at least
five conserved probes with a predicted binding energy of
<−45kcal/mol. All probes were filtered against nonspecific
binding to the human genome.
Overall, 14,161 60-mer oligonucleotide probes and their
corresponding reverse complements were designed. The
array was synthesized on the Agilent 8x60K SurePrint G3
custom array platform (Agilent Technologies, Santa Clara,
Calif, USA). Each of the 28,322 probes was printed in du-
plicate (Supplementary File 2).
2.3. Array Hybridization. DNA was randomly amplified
and labeled with Cy3 using an adaptation of a previously
described protocol without the reverse transcription step
. In parallel, HeLa cell DNA was used as a positive
amplification and hybridization control, and water was used
as a negative control. Array hybridization was performed
with the AgilentGene Expression Hybridization Kit, adapted
from manufacturer’s specifications with the following mod-
ification: nuclease-free water substituted for fragmentation
buffer. Arrays were washed using Agilent Wash Buffer Kit,
according to manufacturer’s specifications, and scanned
using Agilent Scan Control A.8.1.3 software. Data were
Extraction version 10.5.1.1 Software.
2.4. Array Analysis. Values from replicate spots on the array
were averaged for analysis, and data were analyzed using
the E-Predict algorithm . An E-matrix was generated
from theoretical energy profiles for each of the 102 full-
length HPV genomes in the design set, matched against
each of the array probes. E-Predict compares this theoretical
E-matrix profile to the observed hybridization pattern on
an array to generate a similarity score and rank order of
likelihood for each genome. E-Predict was run with unit
vectorplusquadraticmatrix normalization, unitvectorarray
normalization, and a dot product distance metric.
A set of uninformative oligonucleotides were defined as
probes with significant autofluorescence when hybridized to
waterand probeswith cross-hybridization tohuman DNAin
from E-Predict analysis.
2.5. Sequence Genotyping of HPV. α-HPV PCR was per-
formed using thenested primersetsMY09-MY011 and GP5-
GP6, as previously described in [9, 13]. The PCR products
were visualized by agarose gel electrophoresis, and ampli-
cons of correct size were gel purified using the PureLink
Quick Gel Extraction Kit (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, Calif, USA).
Gel-purified DNA was inserted into pCR2.1 TOPO vec-
tor (Invitrogen) and transformed into chemically competent
TOP10 E. coli (Invitrogen), according to manufacturer’s
specifications. For each DNA sample, 12 transformant

ABI 3130xl Genetic Analyzer (Applied Biosystems, Carlsbad,
2.6. Statistical Analysis. A receiver-operating characteristic
(ROC) curve was generated to assess the similarity score
for each of the 102 possible HPV genotype outcomes on
array with the actual genotype(s) detected by sequencing
of the 91 samples, for a total of 9282 tests. Sensitivity and
specificity for the array were calculated with similarity score
cutoff values of 0.035 and 0.1. Sensitivity and specificity
were calculated for the blot based on the 29 types covered,
for a total of 2639 tests. Agreement and Cohen’s kappa
coefficients were calculated for the blot versus the array for
the 29 types covered on the blot. All statistical analysis was
performed with Stata 11 (StataCorp LP, College Station, Tex,
28,322 60-mer oligonucleotide probes were designed and
printed on the array. An E-matrix was generated to reflect
the theoretical hybridization energies of each genome in
the design set to each oligonucleotide on the array. This
matrix was used for E-Predict analysis of biological samples
hybridized to the array.
Performance of the array for one representative HPV
type, HPV18, is demonstrated in Figure 1. The HeLa cervical
cancer cell line, which contains integrated HPV18, was
used as a positive control, and water was used as a negative
control. The range of similarity scores for HPV18 showed
a clear demarcation between positive and negative controls
(Figure 1(a)), and a ROC curve was generated with an
area under the curve of 0.9795 (Figure 1(b)), a near-perfect
To characterize the performance of the array across all
genomes, DNA from 91 anal swab samples was randomly
amplified and hybridized to the array. For each specimen
run on the array, a similarity score was generated for each
of the 102 HPV genotypes in the E-matrix, generating 9,282
of PCR and sequencing. A ROC curve was generated with an
area under the curve of 0.8287 (Figure 2).
Based on the ROC curve, two similarity score cut-points
were generated for sensitivity and specificity calculations
(Table 1). A score of 0.035 yielded a sensitivity of 0.72 and
a specificity of 0.76 for the 102 genotypes in the E-matrix. A
score of 0.1 yielded a sensitivity of 0.41 and a specificity of
0.99 for the same 102 types.
Each of the samples had previously been genotyped for
HPV with a PCR and blot assay that covers 29 individual
types and a probe mixture that detects ten additional types
but does not discriminate between them. Compared to PCR
and sequencing, the blot had a sensitivity of 0.41 and a
specificity of 0.98 for the 29 specific types covered, similar
to the array cut-point of 0.1. For the 29 types covered on

0.6, representing good agreement .
Among the 91 samples, 157 instances of 34 HPV types
were detected by PCR and sequencing. The types detected
were HPV 6, 11, 12, 16, 18, 26, 31, 33, 34, 35, 40, 44, 45,
52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 58, 59, 61, cand62, 66, 67, 70, 71, 72, 81,
82, 83, 84, cand85, 97, and 102. Among those, there were 22
instances of 11 types which were not specifically covered by
the blot strategy. Eighteen of these 22 infections (82%) were
detected on the microarray (Table 2).
We demonstrate the performance of a comprehensive mi-
croarray for detection and genotyping of HPV and validate
this system on a large panel of anal swab samples. Previous
microarrays for HPV genotyping were designed to read out
multiplex or degenerate PCR amplification and targeted
a small number of HPV types. The main benefit of this
system is its accuracy for broad range of HPV genotypes, as
demonstrated by an area under the ROC curve of 0.8287.
Because the nucleic acid amplification is not reliant on
degenerate or multiplex PCR, any HPV type present in the
sample may be detected.
In this sample set, an s value cutoff of 0.1 yielded a
sensitivity of 0.41 and specificity of 0.99. This cutoff favors
specificity over sensitivity, a feature common to many
HPV assays in clinical use. This is based on the prevalent
assumption that extremely low levels of HPV in a sample are
likely not clinically relevant. One example of this in practice
is the blot assay used to characterize this sample set in a
previously reported study . Our array performance was
similar to that of the blot assay (sensitivity 0.41, specificity
0.98) with the benefit of 61 additional HPV types covered on
of 11 HPV types not present on the blot, of which 82% were
detected by the microarray. This demonstrates the benefit of
additional type coverage in a genotyping strategy.
As well as covering more HPV types, our assay is more
flexible than the standard array readout system. Because the
similarity score is a continuous variable, the cutoff can be
tailored to the needs of the assay system. The similarity score
cutoff that optimized both sensitivity and specificity was at
a score of 0.035 (Figure 2). This yielded a sensitivity of 0.71
and specificity of 0.76 compared with PCR and sequencing.
We validated the performance of this microarray by a
comparison to a gold standard of sequence genotyping.
No previous study has reported microarray sensitivity and
specificity with thistypeofvalidation.Some studiesreported
limits of detection and the absence of cross-hybridization
but did not address true sensitivity and specificity [16, 20,
21]. Other studies compared array performance to other
targeted HPV assays rather than to a gold standard of
sequencing. Thus, the authors were only able to report
interassay agreement or Cohen’s kappa. Ermel et al. com-
pared performance of α-PV detection with the Digene
Hybrid Capture II Assay, the Roche Linear Array Assay,
and the Kurabo GeneSquare Assay and reported a sample
proportion of agreement ranging from 0.86 to 0.89 between
the three assays. In two studies assessing multiplex PCR and
array primer extension (APEX), Gheit et al. compared their
arrays to reverse line blot or to one-step PCR and reverse
hybridization with overall kappas of 0.55 and 0.5. In those
studies, only a few samples were selected for sequencing to
confirm array detection of types not seen on the other assays
[14, 15]. In our study, we measured a sample proportion
of agreement of 0.97 between the array and blot, with a
kappa of 0.6. This level of agreement demonstrates the
excellent performance of our system compared to previ-
ously reported arrays.The drawback to comparing assays
with different types of coverage is that the agreement can
only be assessed for the overlapping types, which under-
estimates the utility of a comprehensive array such as this
