  • Patent number: 10717781
    Abstract: The present inventors discovered that neural invasion is suppressed by inhibiting IL-6 in a model for neural invasion of pancreatic cancer, and completed the present invention. The present inventors also demonstrated that: an IL-6 receptor is expressed in cells of human pancreatic cancer cell lines; and IL-6 enhances the chemotactic and migratory activities and intracellular signaling of pancreatic cancer cells; and thus pancreatic cancer can be treated by inhibiting IL-6. Furthermore, the present inventors found that neural invasion of human pancreatic cancer can be suppressed, from the results of administering IL-6 inhibitors to neural invasion model mice.

  • Patent number: 10717383
    Abstract: To provide a vehicle illumination device that achieves good design and that appropriately emits light in a sequence of operations for charging. A vehicle illumination device 1 includes: first light emitting portions 21a and 21b disposed in the vicinity of a boundary portion 4 between a body 2 and a lid 14 via notched portions 18a and 18b formed at upper and lower edges of the lid 14; and second light emitting portions 22a and 22b disposed inside the lid 14. When the lid 14 is unlocked in operation to unlock the lid 14, the first light emitting portions 21a and 21b are turned on. When the lid 14 is depressed in operation to open the lid 14, the first light emitting portions 21a and 21b are turned off. When the lid 14 is opened, the second light emitting portions 22a and 22b are turned on to illuminate power supply ports 11 and 12.

  • Publication number: 20200227881
    Abstract: A laser beam irradiation apparatus including: a plurality of laser light sources emitting first laser beams; and a light-condensing optics system having an incident face on which the first laser beams are made incident and performing an optical operation on the first laser beams to emit second laser beams. The plurality of laser light sources are configured to emit the first laser beams so that beam diameters are expanded towards the incident face. Each first laser beam overlaps at least one of the other laser beams on the incident face. The light-condensing optics system is configured so that beam diameters of second laser beams emitted from the light-condensing optics system are minimal on a target face, and a distance between a center of each second laser beam and the optical axis on the target face is smaller than a beam radius of each second laser beam on the target face.
