SYNAPSE: Consequences of Marijuana Use on Inflammatory Pathways in HIV-Infected Youth
The SYNAPSE study is a NIDA funded trial run by Duke University and the Behavior and Technology Lab (BATLab) at UNC-Chapel Hill. The purpose of this research study is to identify how immune responses and bio-marker profiles are affected by recreational marijuana use with or without tobacco use in youth living with HIV. This study is looking for smokers and nonsmokers alike.
