  • Patent number: 11892136
    Abstract: A vehicle lamp forms a predetermined beam pattern using a plurality of lamp modules arranged in at least one direction. Each of the plurality of lamp modules includes a light source unit that generates light; an optical unit that is disposed in front of the light source unit and transmits the light from the light source unit so that at least a portion of the light incident to an incident surface of the optical unit is output through an exit surface thereof to form the predetermined beam pattern; and an optical path adjustment unit that guides the light generated from the light source unit to the optical unit by adjusting paths of the light. The exit surface of the optical unit of one of the plurality of lamp modules is disposed more forward than the exit surface of the optical unit of another one of the plurality of lamp modules.

  • Publication number: 20230190862
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a composition for the prevention, amelioration, or treatment of urination-related disases, comprising cephalotocin. The cephalotocin according to the present invention modulates oxytocin receptors and vasopressin receptors, and has the effect of reducing urine volume by promoting water reabsorption in the kidneys. This means that cephalotocin has a significant antidiuretic effect, and thus, the cephalotocin of the present invention can be variously used in the field of prevention, amelioration, or treatment of urinary disorders or urination-related diseases.

  • Patent number: 11273000
    Abstract: A stereotactic device for primate brains indicates a brain coordinate reference point of a primate using a simulator for indicating a brain coordinate reference point, thereby providing an initial setting to a zero point corresponding to the brain coordinate reference point. The brain coordinate reference point is conveniently and accurately indicated without relatively expensive equipment, such as a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanner, to determine brain coordinates of the primate, so that a targeting procedure can be conducted on the brain.
