Needlestick injury, can Hek293T develop tumor in my body
I am a lab worker. Today I injected Hek293T into mice but after injection I accidently punctured my finger with used needle. The Hek293 suspension was in very high density (10~8 cells/ml). I found a report about transmission of human adenocarcinoma by needlestick injury. I am very worry now. What should I do now?

Hello,

Were the Hek293T cells transfected with lentivirus or any other plasmid or transgenic vector (prior to you working with the cells)?
