For example, methods and materials for assessing a cancer patient (e.g., a renal cell carcinoma patient) for tumor or peritumoral tissue containing cd14+ cells and proceeding with a cancer treatment option (e.g., a renal cell carcinoma treatment option) based on the presence, absence, or level of cd14+ cells present within the tumor or peritumoral tissue are provided..

Method to bioengineer designer platelets using gene editing and stem cell methodologies
A method of creating cells expressing specific platelet alloantigens is disclosed. In one embodiment, the method comprises the steps of (a) combining one or more guide rnas targeting within a platelet alloantigen target locus; (b) adding a repair template comprising a mutation in the target locus flanked by a homology arm on each side, wherein the template may additionally include a diagnostic restriction enzyme site at the target locus; (c) ligating the guide sequence of step (b) into a plasmid which also expresses a nuclease and, optionally, a selectable marker or a reporter gene; (d) transfecting pluripotent cells with the plasmid of step (c) in the presence of an hdr repair oligo; (e) cloning and testing the resulting reporter positive clones for expression of the alloantigen target of interest; and (f) culturing the resulting cells to expand their numbers or to create a differentiated cell type of interest..

Markers for long-term kidney graft dysfunction
An in vitro method for determining the risk of occurrence of long-term kidney graft dysfunction in a subject comprising: a) measuring the level of cd8+ t cells having a phenotype cd45ra+/cd197−/cd27−/cd28− in a blood sample of the subject, b) comparing the level of cd8. .
t cells having a phenotype cd45ra
In vitro capture and analysis of circulating tumor cells
This invention provides methods and compositions for capturing circulating tumor cells (ctcs) as well as various divergent ctc phenotypes using seprase-specific affinity reagents. Methods of analyzing ctcs and assessing their metastatic potential in vivo and in vitro are also disclosed..

Fluid channel system for examining cells
A fluid channel system for examining cells may comprise a chamber filled with at least one photopolymerized hydrogel and/or one polymerized photodepolymerizable hydrogel to at least 90% capacity. The chamber may open exclusively towards at least one fluid channel via at least two openings.
A determining or predicting a characteristic of a cell
A method of determining or predicting a characteristic of a query cell, for example the identity of the query cell, is described. The method comprises the steps of incubating the query cell with a plurality of chemical cell stressor molecules, determining the growth response of the query cell in the presence of each of the at least three chemical cell stressor molecules to generate a query cell-specific growth response fingerprint, and comparing the query cell-specific growth response fingerprint with one or more reference cell-specific growth response fingerprints corresponding to one or more cells having known characteristics.
Method and device for isolating cells from heterogeneous solution using microfluidic trapping vortices
A method of isolating cells includes providing a microfluidic device having at least one microfluidic channel coupled to an inlet and an outlet, the at least one microfluidic channel comprises at least one expansion region disposed along the length thereof. The at least one expansion region is an abrupt increase in a cross-sectional dimension of the at least one microfluidic channel configured to generate a vortex within the at least one expansion region in response to fluid flow.
