  • Publication number: 20220372165
    Abstract: The present invention concerns antigen binding proteins directed against PRAME protein-derived antigens. The invention in particular provides antigen binding proteins which are specific for the tumor expressed antigen PRAME, wherein the tumor antigen comprises or consists of SEQ ID NO: 50 and is in a complex with a major histocompatibility complex (MHC) protein. The antigen binding proteins of the invention contain, in particular, the complementary determining regions (CDRs) of novel engineered T cell receptors (TCRs) that specifically bind to said PRAME peptide. The antigen binding proteins of the invention are for use in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of PRAME expressing cancerous diseases. Further provided are nucleic acids encoding the antigen binding proteins of the invention, vectors comprising said nucleic acids, recombinant cells expressing the antigen binding proteins and pharmaceutical compositions comprising the antigen binding proteins of the invention.

  • Patent number: 11427945
    Abstract: The invention relates to an arrangement comprising a visible seam, which is arranged in a sheet material part. The arrangement also includes a lighting apparatus, which is arranged beneath an underside of the sheet material part. The visible seam has an upper thread and a lower thread. The lower thread extends along the underside of the sheet material part in a direction (R). The upper thread has first thread portions along the upper side of the sheet material part and is guided, at stitch holes formed during the sewing process, through said stitch holes via second thread portions. By means of the lighting apparatus, emitted light passes into the second thread portions, into the stitch holes, and from there into the first thread portions. Some of the light propagates along the first thread portions, starting from an adjacent second thread portion, whereas another portion of the light exits from the first thread portion. In this way, the upper thread of the visible seam is illuminated.

  • Publication number: 20220267189
    Abstract: A method for separating a substrate of a brittle-hard material is provided. The method includes the steps of introducing defects into the substrate at a spacing from one another along a separation line using at least one pulsed laser beam; selecting an average spacing between neighboring defects and a number of laser pulses for generating a respective defect such that a breaking stress (?B) for separating the substrate along the separation line is smaller than a first reference stress (?R1) of the substrate and such that an edge strength ?K of the separation edge obtained after separation is greater than a second reference stress (?R2) of the substrate; and separating the substrate after introducing the defects by applying a stress along the separation line.

  • Patent number: 11396471
    Abstract: A method for the production of glass or glass ceramic elements from flat glass or glass ceramic parts is provided where the edges of the glass or glass ceramic elements are treated by a combination of two processes. The flat glass or glass ceramic element with an edge surface connecting the two side surfaces is produced. The edge surface has at least one first elongated, strip-shaped edge region and at least one second elongated strip-shaped edge region, which are formed by a ground edge. The edge regions extend in the longitudinal direction along the edge surface and along the side surfaces. The first edge region has elongated parallel filamentary damages that are parallel and adjacent to one another and, in particular, spaced apart equidistantly, in the longitudinal direction thereof extending transversely to the side surfaces and along the surface of the first edge region.
