Eleven novel human papillomavirus (HPV) types were isolated and characterized from healthy individuals in China. HPV163 belongs to the γ-1 species, HPV 164 and HPV 168 fit in the γ-8 species, HPV 165 and KC5 belongs to the γ-12 species, HPV 168 is closely allied with the γ-4 species, HPV 169 is closely related to the γ-11 species, and HPV 170 is related to the γ-12 species. In addition, HPV 161, HPV 162, and HPV 166 may form a new HPV species of the γ-PV genus. The prevalence of these HPV types in the normal population is low.
