Serum concentration of connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) is not associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) symptom duration or the disease activity score in 28 joints (DAS28). a No significant association between symptom duration and serum CTGF concentration. All patients with RA (including patients with RA in the training and validation cohorts) were pooled in the final analysis, and the correlation between serum CTGF and symptom duration was tested. No significant correlation was observed, with R = 0.062 (p > 0.05). b No significant correlation between DAS28 and serum CTGF concentration. All patients with RA were pooled in the final analysis, and the correlation between serum CTGF and DAS28 was tested. No significant correlation was observed, with R = 0.10 (p > 0.05)
