Abstract: It has been found that the level of protein tyrosine phosphatase 'alpha' (PTP'alpha') expression is increased in significant numbers of tumors and that PTP'alpha' can be used as a marker for the diagnosis or prognosis of cancers. Accordingly, the invention provides a method for diagnosis or prognosis of a cancer, which method comprises detection of PTP'alpha' or PTP'alpha' nucleic acid. In general, the level of PTP'alpha' or PTP'alpha' nucleic acid in a first biological sample derived from tissue suspected of being neoplastic or potentially neoplastic is compared with the level in a second biological sample derived from normal tissue.
