  • Publication number: 20190025282
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide a method for accurately predicting a cancer patient prognosis based on a count of desired cells for which expression of a leukocyte marker and an epithelial marker is hardly exhibited by detecting those cells. Provided is a method for diagnosing an overall survival prognosis for a patient suffering from cancer, the method including: a step of obtaining a concentrated solution containing desired cells by pre-treating a biological sample obtained from the patient; a step of optically detecting the concentrated cells; and a step of detecting the desired cells from the detected image, wherein an association is made with the overall survival prognosis diagnosis by counting the detected desired cells, and wherein the desired cells are cells confirmed by the existence of a cell nucleus and in which expression of a leukocyte marker and an epithelial marker is hardly exhibited.

  • Patent number: 5203901
    Abstract: A processing method is presented for treating sludges from municipal and waste materials. The ashes from such sludges, containing SiO.sub.2 as a primary constituent, are treated with additives to tailor the feed material composition. Thermal processing, including melting, rapid cooling and subsequent annealing, produces a crystallized glass microstructure in which needle-shaped shaped crystals of anorthite and .beta.-wollastnite are infiltrated with a vitreous material. Such crystallized glasses having superior mechanical and aesthetic properties are an attractive architectural material which can be utilized for interior finishing, exterior walls, flooring as well as for interior decorations.

  • Patent number: 4334844
    Abstract: A uniform thin replica film of a specimen for electron microscopy having a high resolution power such as approximately 1 A is presented. This uniform thin replica film is directly prepared on the specimen by a plasma polymerization technique by depositing organic monomer vapors on a specimen placed on a negative electrode in a high vacuum atmosphere. The deposition is carried out by applying a discharge voltage of from 0.5 to 3 K.V.D.C. between a pair of positive and negative electrodes for 1 to 15 minutes to effect a glow discharge under the conditions of a current density of the glow discharge of from 0.1 and 2 mA/cm.sup.2 and a gas pressure of from 1 to 10.sup.-2 Torr in the system.
