Abstract: The present invention pertains to a new method for the diagnosis, prognosis, stratification and/or monitoring of a therapy, of breast cancer in a patient. The method is based on the use of hyaluronic acid and S100P as combined biomarkers in the plasma of breast cancer patients. The new biomarkers of the invention allow diagnosing and even stratifying of breast cancer, in particular metastatic breast cancer. The method provides an interesting alternative to present procedures such as the analysis of the circulating tumor cells (CTC) status. The biomarkers of the invention furthermore allow to monitor therapy success of breast cancer patients and to estimate a patient's prognosis.
