A prospective pilot study of circulating endothelial cells as a potential new biomarker in portal hypertension.

Abstract

BACKGROUND/AIMS Peripheral circulating endothelial cells (CEC) have been proposed as a prognostic marker in cardiovascular diseases. Cirrhosis and portal hypertension are associated with vascular injury yet little is known about CEC count in these conditions. Therefore, we evaluated CEC count in patients with cirrhosis, and correlated it with markers of… (More)
