Study Description

Cardiac Sarcoidosis Randomized Trial

Prospective randomized controlled trial comparing low dose Prednisone/Methotrexate combination to standard dose Prednisone in patients diagnosed with acute active clinically manifest cardiac sarcoidosis and not yet treated. The Investigators hypothesize that low dose Prednisone/Methotrexate combination will be as effective as standard dose Prednisone, and result in significantly better quality of life and less toxicity than standard dose Prednisone.
