It made my day, as well. I have a Google news alert set to catch articles like this. It was pretty surreal to finally read one that offered such hope. I got pretty emotional. Let's just pray a treatment is developed soon!

What I love about this article is that it is from a very credible group of Doctors. I get hit up all of the time with peoples causes and cures, but they are from much less reliable and trusting groups - if you know what I mean.

Thanks for sharing. I hope this can pin point causes so a cure can be found. Atleast treatments that do not have terrible side effects.

This is AWWWWEEESOME!!!

I am so excited to hear this as not only will it potentially help really treat the root problem, it may also help to find treatments for the symptoms through out the body. My aching ankles would so welcome a medicine that actually works!!

Sarcoidosis and the Body
Sarcoidosis is a "multiorgan" disease - meaning it almost always involves more than one organ. It's unpredictable and affects different people in different ways.

You can learn about the ways in which sarcoidosis affects the body in FSR's Sarcoidosis and the Body brochure.
