Introduction Vascular adhesion protein-1 (VAP-1) is a known driver of hepatic inflammation and fibrosis, with elevated levels detected in the circulation in disease. We studied the tissue expression of VAP-1 in midgut NETs and carcinoid heart disease (CHD) alongside circulating soluble VAP-1 (sVAP-1) to determine the role of VAP-1 in NETs.Methods Expression of VAP-1 and inflammatory and stromal markers in midgut NETs tissue, CHD valves and control valves...
