RANKL as a target molecule for treatment of joint destruction

RANKL as a target molecule for treatment of joint destruction

Clinical Calcium 17(4): 586-592

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disorder characterized progressive joint destruction. Recent studies have revealed an essential role of receptor activator of NF-kappaB ligand (RANKL) in bone destruction in RA, and therapeutics targeting RANKL has been attracting a great deal of attention.
