The transfer of information from one cell to another, where an endocrine hormone is transported from the signal-producing cell to the receiving cell via the circulatory system (via blood, lymph or cerebrospinal fluid). The signaling cell and the receiving cell are often distant to each other.
This term should be used with caution, and only used when the signaling between cells has been clearly distinguished from paracrine signaling.
