Focus on Sarcoidosis
- Sarcoidosis is a rare inflammatory disease with unclear natural history. Using a large, retrospective, longitudinal, population-based cohort, we sought to define its natural history in order to guide future clinical studies.
- Sarcoidosis remains an enigmatic disease. Its cause is unknown, the indications for treatment are often unclear, and its natural history is variable. An additional important enigmatic issue that has hampered clinical sarcoidosis research is the failure to develop reliable and universally accepted clinical endpoints.
