Sexually Transmitted Diseases:
On page 849, second paragraph, lines 10-14, we indicated that only specimens determined to be HPV positive by generic probe during the initial dot blot step were typed using the Roche Linear Array HPV genotyping test. However, we also used the Roche Linear Array to test samples that were negative for β-globin DNA during the dot blot step. Samples that were negative for β-globin DNA during the dot blot step and also HPV negative by the Roche Linear Array were deemed insufficient.
