Mayo AVC Registry and Biobank

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) accounts for over 360,000 deaths in the US and 400,000 in Europe per annum, including thousands under the age of 40 who die unexpectedly and without warning. Whilst the majority of SCAs are triggered by heart attacks, in those under the age of 40 years this …

Phase N/A

Cardiac Sarcoidosis Randomized Trial

Subjects meeting the study inclusion/exclusion criteria will be randomized equally to receive either Prednisone 0.5 mg kg/day for 6-months (MAX dose 30 mg per day) or Methotrexate 15-20 mg po, sc, or IM once a week for 6-months + Folic Acid 2 mg OD for 6 months + Prednisone 20 …

ACTHAR Therapy for Central Nervous System Sarcoidosis

Central nervous system (CNS) involvement is one of the most severe manifestations of sarcoidosis. Sarcoidosis affecting the leptomeninges, spinal cord, or brain parenchyma portends a difficult course and frequently results in severe disability or death (1). Treatment of moderate and severe CNS sarcoidosis typically involves a combination of corticosteroids and …

Phase

Inhaled Treprostinil in Sarcoidosis Patients With Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary sarcoidosis-associated pulmonary hypertension is classified as WHO Group 5 pulmonary hypertension and may occur in anywhere from 5-20% of sarcoidosis patients. Inhaled treprostinil has shown clinical improvements in exercise capacity after 12 weeks of therapy in patients with WHO Group 1 pulmonary hypertension. More recently, there has been interest …

Phase

Multi-elemental Imaging of Lung Tissues With LIBS (Laser-induced Breakdown Spectroscopy)

There is a major health problem due to the environmental and occupational related exposures to mineral particles, metals, and dust. The impact on health is considerable in terms of prevalence, morbidity and healthcare costs. Pathologists rarely report the presence of a possible mineral or metal-related etiology in a specimen by …

Phase N/A

Validation of the Analysis Methodology Behind the Use of Quantitative 18F-FDG PET/CT to Assess Lung Inflammation

Inflammation plays an important role in a myriad of human diseases. Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs) are characterised by widespread inflammation and represent a major burden to the health sector. Imaging offers a method of assessing lung inflammation which is non-invasive and may help facilitate the development of new therapeutic drugs. …

Phase N/A

Diagnostic Potential of PET/MRI in Cardiac Sarcoidosis

The aim of the study is to find better and more specific non-invasive methods to diagnose and stage cardiac sarcoidosis with the use of advanced imaging modalities, simultaneous 3T MRI and PET. Cardiac sarcoidosis is a disease of possibly fatal outcome in young people. The use of a combined PET/MRI …

Phase N/A

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea in Sarcoidosis

Sarcoidosis is a multisystemic granulomatous disease of unknown origin. Fatigue is a common problem in sarcoidosis affecting between 50% and 80% of patients, and thus represents a major impairment of their quality of life. The findings of recent studies suggest a high prevalence of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) in patients …

Phase N/A

Routine Cardiac Screening in Sarcoidosis Patients

Cardiac involvement is among the most feared complications of sarcoidosis, and it is the second leading cause of death from sarcoidosis. Autopsy studies and serial imaging studies in patients without cardiac symptoms suggest that approximately 25% of U.S. sarcoidosis patients have evidence of cardiac involvement. 3 Major manifestations of cardiac …

Phase N/A

PET MRI Study in Patients With Cardiac Sarcoidosis

Myocarditis or inflammatory cardiomyopathy refers to inflammation of the myocardium. Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disorder of unknown etiology, which can result in myocardial inflammation. Approximately 5% of patients with sarcoidosis have clinically apparent cardiac involvement, yet autopsy series indicate that cardiac involvement is present in up to 25% of …
