  • Patent number: 8350118
    Abstract: The object of the present invention is to provide a mouse model for allergic diseases such as atopic dermatitis, and a dermatitis mouse model with impaired skin-barrier function. The present inventors found out that a mouse that has been caused to completely lose the function of expressing profilaggrin protein and filaggrin protein by entirely or partially disrupting the endogenous gene encoding filaggrin by a genetic mutation such as deletion or replacement, can be used as a mouse model for allergic diseases or atopic dermatitis wherein the skin-barrier function has been impaired.

  • Patent number: 8350863
    Abstract: Methods and systems for improving resource utilization when remoting three dimensional graphics commands that are generated by an application executing on a local computing machine. An agent that executes on a local computing machine intercepts a first call to a drawing library. The application generates this first call to request information from the drawing library. The agent further transmits a first frame that is generated by the application, to a remote computing machine, and prevents a return of the first call to the requesting application until the agent receives a notification indicating either the first frame was transmitted to the remote computing device or the first frame was rendered. Upon receiving such a notification, the agent permits the return of the first call to the requesting application.

  • Patent number: 8352605
    Abstract: Systems and methods of storing previously transmitted data and using it to reduce bandwidth usage and accelerate future communications are described. By using algorithms to identify long compression history matches, a network device may improve compression efficiently and speed. A network device may also use application specific parsing to improve the length and number of compression history matches. Further, by sharing compression histories, compression history indexes and caches across multiple devices, devices can utilize data previously transmitted to other devices to compress network traffic. Any combination of the systems and methods may be used to efficiently find long matches to stored data, synchronize the storage of previously sent data, and share previously sent data among one or more other devices.

  • Patent number: 8351682
    Abstract: This invention enables information on a connection wiring with a substrate of a mounted component to be accurately and easily inputted in an X-ray examination apparatus. In teaching of a substrate examination, when a user inputs a two-dimensional region of a component to be examined with respect to a visible light image of the substrate, three-dimensional data is generated for the relevant region, which data is then analyzed to acquire a center coordinate, the number, the number of rows, and the number of columns on a ball terminal connecting the component to the substrate. Results such as the center coordinate acquired in such a manner may be displayed. The visible light image for the substrate is displayed in a display field of a screen.
