********************************
Sarcoidosis Research Study
Pulmonary Sarcoidosis Treatment Trial
If you have been diagnosed with sarcoidosis of the lung, you may be eligible to participate in a study at the NIH Clinical Center. The purpose of this study is to determine if a widely used cholesterol-lowering agent can decrease the amount of prednisone (steroids) required to manage your illness. Eligible patients will receive a comprehensive evaluation at the Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

There is no cost to you for travel or medical testing.

For further information, please contact our research coordinator, toll free, at 1-877-NIH-LUNG (1-877-644-5864), e-mail: LungStudy@nhlbi.nih.gov, or you may call Sandra MacDonald, RN at 301-451-4899. Alternatively, you may reach the NIH Patient Recruitment and Public Liaison Office via TTY 1-866-411-1010.

  1. Sarcoidosis can cause muscle pain or muscle weakness. In the joints, sarcoidosis can lead to a granulomatous form of arthritis. Sarcoidosis can also cause painless holes and swelling in the bones.
