  • Patent number: 11518976
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a method for efficiently obtaining a lactic acid bacterium that is made to contain a large amount of double-stranded RNA; and a lactic acid bacterium having a high double-stranded RNA content obtained by the method. The object is achieved by: (1) a method for producing a double-stranded RNA-containing lactic acid bacterium, including a step of culturing a lactic acid bacterium under at least one condition of an aeration condition and a low-temperature condition lower than an optimum temperature, thereby obtaining the double-stranded RNA-containing lactic acid bacterium; (2) a double-stranded RNA-containing lactic acid bacterium, in which the content of double-stranded RNA is 2.0 times or more as compared with the content of double-stranded RNA when a bacterium of the same strain is cultured for the same culture time under an optimum temperature and non-aeration condition; or the like.

  • Publication number: 20220305106
    Abstract: The present invention relates generally to a population of stem cells (e.g., iPSCs or HSCs) that comprise nucleic acids encoding a T cell receptor and a chimeric antigen receptor directed to multiple distinct antigenic determinants, for example two distinct tumour antigenic determinants. The present invention is also directed to a population of T cells that co-express a T cell receptor and a chimeric antigen receptor directed to multiple distinct antigenic determinants, such as two distinct tumour antigenic determinants. The cells of the present invention can be derived from chosen donors whose HLA type is compatible with significant sectors of the populations, and are useful in a wide variety of applications, in particular in the context of the therapeutic treatment of neoplastic conditions.

  • Patent number: 11027938
    Abstract: A medium transport device includes a transporting member, a medium offsetting member, a guide member, and an interlocking member. The guide member is located upstream of the transporting member in a medium transport direction. The guide member is movable between a first position, in which the guide member guides the medium toward the medium accommodating member, and a second position, in which the guide member guides the medium to a destination different from the medium accommodating member, to guide the medium. The interlocking member moves the guide member between the first position and the second position in conjunction with a movement of the medium offsetting member in a width direction of the medium offsetting member.
