Is cec (circulating endothelial cells) a commercially available blood test? If so, where to order?

What for?: Increased cec in peripheral blood reflects significant vascular damage and dysfunction and is mostly a research tool. You need to see your doctor who may order the test, though i doubt there is any reason to order one. How would you interpret the results?
