This is a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, study comparing the efficacy and safety of intravenous (IV) efzofitimod 3 mg/kg and 5 mg/kg versus placebo after 48 weeks of treatment. This study will enroll adults with histologically confirmed pulmonary sarcoidosis receiving stable treatment with oral corticosteroid (OCS), with or without immunosuppressant therapy. The duration of patient participation is up to 56 weeks, including a Screening period (up to 4 weeks), a Treatment period (48 weeks), and a Follow-up period (4 weeks).
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of namilumab in subjects with chronic pulmonary sarcoidosis (CPS). This study will include adult subjects who have been diagnosed with CPS for more than 6 months who are not well controlled by OCS and/or immunosuppressive therapy (IST). 100 total subjects are planned for this study. There will be a Double-blind treatment period of this study lasting approximately 26 weeks as well as an optional Open-Label Extension (OLE) Treatment Period which will extend the length of the study to approximately 64 weeks.
Fatigue is a pervasive and disabling symptom in sarcoidosis with limited treatment options. There is a significant association between heightened stress and sarcoidosis-associated fatigue. The proposed project will evaluate the usability/feasibility of a smartphone-based stress management application for the self-managementof sarcoidosis-associated stress and fatigue.
This research study aims to determine a less invasive way to assess heart function by taking measurements of the heart while subjects are performing an exercise cardiac MRI. Subjects will undergo two exercise phases and MRI measurements will be taken after each exercise phase. These measurements will be compared to available clinical data (including demographic, hemodynamic, radiologic, and functional) and future outcome data.
This is a trial for cardiac sarcoidosis in patients seen during routine clinical care who have not been clinically suspected to have cardiac sarcoidosis according to conventional criteria. The addition of echocardiogram and ambulatory ECG to usual clinical follow-up will be compared. This is a multicenter study, coordinated by the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research. Up to 12 sites in the US and Europe will participate. Each site will enroll 50 consecutive consenting individuals to a total of 600 enrolled subjects in a randomized trial of additional screening versus usual care.
The purpose of the study is to generate a bio bank of specimens for research. We will tissue that would otherwise be discarded from clinical or surgical procedure and information from medical records. We will also collect discarded blood, urines and sputum. Collecting samples will help to better understanding the mechanisms of cardiovascular diseases, identify biomarkers for early diagnosis and to predict safety and efficacy of new therapies.
You are being asked to take part in this research study because you have been diagnosed with pulmonary sarcoidosis. Sarcoidosis is a disease that can affect the lungs, skin and other organs of the body. Sarcoidosis also involves immune cells which fight bacteria. The purpose of this study is to see if using specific antibiotics will help these immune fighting cells get rid of bacterial proteins and how the antibiotics affect respiratory (breathing) function. The antibiotics used in this study are Levaquin, Ethambutol, Azithromycin, and either Rifampin or Rifabutin. You will by chance be assigned either these medicines or a placebo (an inactive substance).
The purpose of this study is to create and maintain a registry, which is a database (a searchable collection of information) about children, adolescents and young adults with pediatric onset of rheumatic diseases. This data may help in the evaluation of the safety and benefit of medications that are prescribed to patients who have rheumatic diseases.
