Your Question

Is there any research going on to find a safer and better drug for sarcoidosis?

Our Answer

We have identified the following information that we hope you find helpful. If you still have questions, please contact us.

How can I learn about research involving sarcoidosis?

The U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), through the National Library of Medicine, developed ClinicalTrials.gov to provide patients, family members, and members of the public with current information on clinical research studies. To find clinical trials enrolling individuals with sarcoidosis, click on the link above and use "sarcoidosis" as your search term. After you click on a study, review its "eligibility" criteria to determine its appropriateness. Use the study’s contact information to learn more. Check this site often for regular updates.

You can also contact the Patient Recruitment and Public Liaison (PRPL) Office at the NIH. We recommend calling toll-free 1-800-411-1222 to speak with a specialist, who can help you determine if you are eligible for any clinical trials. If you are located outside the United States, and would like to be contacted via telephone, you will need to provide your telephone number in full, including area code and international dialing prefix.

The Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research also provides the latest information on sarcoidosis research.
