Introduction: Circulating endothelial cells (CECs) are mature endothelial cells that are shed into the bloodstream. We hypothesised that neuroendocrine tumors (NETs), being highly vascular, may shed more CECs into the circulation, and that changes in their number may serve as a biomarker for anti-angiogenic therapy.
