The purpose of this research study to find out if a drug called OctreoScan can help doctors diagnose people with cardiac sarcoidosis better. OctreoScan is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to diagnose certain tumors.
In a study of Cardiac sarcoidosis, a serious heart condition, a radiotracer is being used to examine inflammation.
The purpose of the trial is to determine the accuracy of Cu-64 labelled DOTATATE for diagnosing cardiac sarcoidosis using PET/CT or PET/MRI.
The purpose of this study is to identify patients with cardiac sarcoidosis who may be at risk for sudden death.
The investigators will evaluate the detection of cardiac sarcoidosis or inflammation using 18F-FSPG PET/MRI.
Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disease involving most frequently the lung, the eyes, the lymph nodes and the skin. Skin lesions may be disfiguring and impair the quality of life. Thalidomide is a multi-target drug that has been shown to be of benefit in skin sarcoidosis in case reports. The objective is to assess the efficacy and tolerance of thalidomide in skin sarcoidosis.
to determine the genetic pathways operating at the tissue level to cause granulomatous inflammation in the lungs and lymph nodes of patients with sarcoidosis. By so doing, we hope to identify unique genetic mechanisms which will aid in the diagnosis of sarcoidosis and will help us understand the pathogenesis of this poorly understood disease.
The exact cause of the chronic lung disease sarcoidosis is still unknown. Consequently, a complete efficacious treatment is still not available. Earlier studies indicate an important key role for oxidative stress, i.e. an imbalance between the production of and the protection against ROS, in the etiology of sarcoidosis. Antioxidants, needed for protection against ROS, are indeed lower in sarcoidosis. Therefore, antioxidant therapy to strengthen the reduced antioxidant defense m...
The purpose of this study is to compare peoples with disease (sarcoidosis) to those without disease. We want to see if people with sarcoidosis have a different immune response to those people without disease. The goal of this study is to see if the nicotine patch is an anti-inflammatory treatment for sarcoidosis.
Growing research from independent laboratories provide an association between mycobacteria and sarcoidosis. More recent immunologic and molecular studies demonstrate immune responses to mycobacteria virulence factors. We hypothesize that sarcoidosis pathogenesis reflects an immune response against metabolically-active mycobacterial species. The purpose of this study is to assess if administration of anti-mycobacterial drug therapy will aid in resolution of cutaneous sarcoido...
Sarcoidosis is a multi-systemic disorder, meaning that it can involve any organ in the body and that its clinical presentation is highly variable. In 90% of all sarcoidosis cases the lungs are affected. It is difficult to give a concise definition of sarcoidosis due to the fact that its exact cause is still unknown. Consequently, diagnosing the disease is also rather difficult. Up till now, sarcoidosis is generally diagnosed by using general clinical methods to evaluate the sta...
One study has suggested a connection between an infection with Rickettsia species and sarcoidosis finding molecular evidence of rickettsial deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) in two patients. Another study found no antibodies in twenty Swedish patients with sarcoidosis. This study will further enhance the subject by three different approaches in Danish patients. The purpose of this study is to find serological and molecular evidence of an infection with Rickettsia species in D...
In this this investigation, 15 subjects with a high probability of cardiac sarcoidosis based on clinical criteria and abnormal cardiac FDG uptake on initial, clinically indicted FDG PET study will be considered for this study. The study will test the following Aims: Aim 1. Effect of FDG incubation time on visual and quantitative interpretation of FDG uptake. Changes in incubation time can affect imaging target:background ratios and study sensitivity/specificity. For the...
Myocarditis or inflammatory cardiomyopathy refers to inflammation of the heart muscle (the myocardium). Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disorder that may involve the heart, causing inflammation, and potentially resulting in complications including arrhythmia and sudden death. The objective of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic and prognostic significance of simultaneous combined 18F-FDG PET and cardiac MRI imaging in the evaluation of inflammatory cardiomyopath...
The purpose of the study is to see if Humira is effective and safe in the treatment of sarcoidosis.
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 -dimer levels in these population.
Sarcoidosis is a inflammatory disease affecting many parts of the body, especially the lungs. While most patients do well, there is a group of patients who require continuous doses of prednisone or other drugs. The current study will determine the role of Rituximab as new agent for patients with refractory disease.
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a rare condition in which the heart muscle cells especially of the main pumping chamber (the 'ventricle') is replaced by fat and scar tissue. Sarcoidosis is a condition that can affect many organs but when it affects the heart patches of inflammation can result in scarring, especially of the ventricles. Both conditions can cause dangerous heart rhythms and sudden death. Sarcoidosis can be treated with inflammation suppre...
The purpose of this study is to determine how safe and effective Abatacept is in treating patients who have progressive pulmonary sarcoidosis.
There is a need for a more reliable, expeditious therapy that can be used as an alternative to glucocorticoids in severe Central Nervous System (CNS) sarcoidosis. This study aims to provide evidence for effectiveness of ACTHAR gel in CNS sarcoidosis, and provide information about its safety and tolerability
Exercise intolerance and reduced health status have been found in patients with sarcoidosis and has been related to skeletal muscle weakness. The present researchers reason that skeletal muscle weakness is, at least in part, related to physical inactivity and therefore partially reversible following a structured exercise training program. Nevertheless, the effects of exercise training have never been studied in patients with sarcoidosis. Therefore, the present study is undertak...
The goal of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic agreement between, on the one hand, ultra-low dose CT and MRI with UTE pulse sequences, and on the other hand, standard CT scan, to quantify lung parenchyma patterns in thoracic sarcoidosis.
The aim of this study is to collect information about the clinical course and characteristics of sarcoidosis patients around the world through web-based surveys. Recruitment is directed at and driven by patients in the sarcoidosis community. This will allow the the investigators to study sarcoidosis patients across all demographic, geographic, and socioeconomic boundaries, not just patients seen at large research centers. The investigators believe this study can give investigat...
The purpose of this study is to assess if ACZ885 will improve lung function in association with reduction of tissue inflammation in patients with chronic sarcoidosis.
For pulmonary sarcoidosis, the initial dose recommended by the joint statement of the American Thoracic Society (ATS), European Respiratory Society (ERS), and The World Association of Sarcoidosis and Other Granulomatous Disorders (WASOG) is 20-40 mg per day.5 The exact dose and duration of treatment for sarcoidosis are unknown.4 We hypothesize that a higher dose of 40 mg per day as compared to a 20 mg/day dose of prednisone will be more effective in preventing post-treatment re...
