Title: (EN) Analytical markers for malignant breast cancer
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

The present invention relates to a gene encoding a new member of the metalloproteinase family which has been found to be specifically associated with invasive breast cancer, and to methods of diagnosis for such cancer comprising detection of the marker or its nucleotide sequence, and to treatment or prophylaxis by inhibiting, altering the activity of or binding the marker, or by interfering with its synthesis.
