An animal model was used to establish the risk of transmitting a virus infection by subcutaneous jet injection. Virus transmission was studied with mice chronically infected with LDH virus. The virus infection was transmitted by subcutaneous jet injection in 16 cases out of 49. Other routes of cross-infection were ruled out. Before using the jet injector as a harmless instrument for mass subcutaneous injection, further experiments on the risks of virus transmission should be performed.
