Risk Indicators of Sarcoidosis Evolution-Unified Protocol (RISE-UP)
The purpose of this study is to develop prediction models that can prognosticate patients with sarcoidosis using clinical data and biological markers that can be obtained during a clinic visit.
Primary Aim/Objective The primary objective of this study is to determine which clinical features measured during a routine clinic visit are risk factors for progression of pulmonary sarcoidosis over the follow-up period in adults with pulmonary sarcoidosis.
Secondary Aim/Objectives The secondary objective is to determine if blood biomarkers measured during a routine clinic visit can improve the risk assessment for progression of pulmonary sarcoidosis over the follow-up period.
The investigators will measure two types of blood markers to achieve this goal:
- Clinically available blood markers that are available in most clinical labs
- Blood proteins and gene expression that reflect interferon inflammation and are not currently available as tests in clinical labs
