65. Rapid Fire Journal Club 6 – SARCORT Trial

Today we’re continuing our Rapid Fire Journal Club series. We’ve mainly been discussing landmark trials, but today we’re delving into a new study with interesting findings that are applicable to a common presentation in pulmonary medicine: treatment naive sarcoidosis. We’re discussing the SARCORT trial published in the European Respiratory Journal in 2023. This study evaluated a high vs low dose steroid trial in patients with sarcoidosis. Pulm PEEPs Associate Editor Luke Hedrick walks us through the study.
