One can identify and quantify one or more glycosylation markers of a physiological condition such as a disease or a stage of disease by utilizing quantitative HPLC analysis of glycans which have been released from unpurified glycoproteins. The unpurified glycoproteins can be total glycoproteins or a selection of the total glycoproteins. The identified glycosylation marker can be a native glycan or a digestion product which has been segregated and amplified by exoglycosidase digestions. This strategy is compatible with a high throughput format and glycan data base searching. One can utilize the identified glycosylation marker, for example, for monitoring the physiological condition in a subject. One can also use the glycosylation marker to identify glycoproteins that carry the glycosylation marker which can also be used to monitor the physiological condition. The biomarker may also be a subset of glycoforms of a glycoprotein that are separated in trains of spots on 2D gel.
