Core Tip Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We propose that CTGF is a potentially novel effector molecule in the pathogenesis of RA. Blocking the CTGF pathways by biological agents may have great beneficial effect in patients with RA.
