Study: IFNb treatment: Single cell transcriptomics reveals opioid usage evokes widespread suppression of antiviral gene program 9278 cells

In order to understand the immune modulatory effect of opioids in a systematic and unbiased way, we performed single cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from opioid-dependent individuals and non-dependent controls.
