Progressive pulmonary sarcoidosis occurs in up to twenty percent of patients who require persistent treatment, but available treatment options have shown considerable long-term toxicity an...
This prospective study was conducted to explore clinical characteristics and outcomes of patients diagnosed with pulmonary sarcoidosis and PH. The investigators also assessed the role of D...
Evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of multiple doses of ACZ885 vs. placebo when administered via intravenous infusion (IV), on pulmonary function in patients with COPD
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of H.P. Acthar® Gel (Acthar) in the treatment of pulmonary sarcoidosis.
Patients with advanced sarcoidosis often develop pulmonary hypertension. Pulmonary hypertension is a condition where the right side of the heart has to push the blood though the lungs at a...
In sarcoidosis, the design and validation of an appropriate risk stratification strategy is hampered by the considerable variability in initial presentation, disease evolution, and outcome. Although s...
A 76-year-old woman, who had a history of ocular sarcoidosis, was incidentally found to have a huge pulmonary artery aneurysm, along with aortic, mitral and tricuspid valve insufficiency. She underwen...
Sarcoidosis is a systemic disease characterized by noncaseating granulomatous inflammation of multiple organ systems. Pulmonary, cardiac, and neurologic involvements have the worst prognosis. Current ...
The purpose of this article is to provide understanding of renal sarcoidosis, the different types of renal sarcoidosis, disease burden of renal involvement, and treatment options.
Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disorder characterized by development of noncaseating granulomas in various organs. Although the etiology of this condition is unclear, environmental and gen...
Sarcoidosis affecting predominantly the lungs, the site most frequently involved and most commonly causing morbidity and mortality in sarcoidosis. Pulmonary sarcoidosis is characterized by sharply circumscribed granulomas in the alveolar, bronchial, and vascular walls, composed of tightly packed cells derived from the mononuclear phagocyte system. The clinical symptoms when present are dyspnea upon exertion, nonproductive cough, and wheezing. (Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p431)
Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.
Excessive accumulation of extravascular fluid in the lung, an indication of a serious underlying disease or disorder. Pulmonary edema prevents efficient PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE in the PULMONARY ALVEOLI, and can be life-threatening.
Narrowing below the PULMONARY VALVE or well below it in the infundibuluar chamber where the pulmonary artery originates, usually caused by a defective VENTRICULAR SEPTUM or presence of fibrous tissues. It is characterized by restricted blood outflow from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the PULMONARY ARTERY, exertional fatigue, DYSPNEA, and chest discomfort.
Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.
