This test is ideal for patients with suspected sarcoidosis. This test shows the severity of sarcoidosis where the 68% positivity shows stage 1 of disease while 86% positivity indicates stage II and 91% positivity indicates stage III of the disease. Prednisone therapy helps to reduce the ACE activity among patients. It may lead to complications, such as leprosy, psoriasis and histoplasmosis.
