  • Publication number: 20210140531
    Abstract: In a wave generator for a strain wave gearing, a plug outer peripheral surface of a rigid wave plug has a non-circular profile and is fixed to an inner-race inner peripheral surface of a wave bearing by press-fitting and using an adhesive. The plug outer peripheral surface is a groove formation surface in which microgrooves are formed as adhesive-retaining grooves that can retain the adhesive. When the wave plug is press-fitted into the wave bearing, the amount of adhesive that is scraped out from therebetween is reduced and the bonding strength therebetween can be increased while also preventing unevenness of the bonding strength.

  • Publication number: 20210137880
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a drug and a method which suppress progress of disease in which the amount of amyloid ? protein in the brain is increased, such as Alzheimer's disease. 1-(3-(2-(1-Benzothiophen-5-yl)ethoxy)propyl)azetidin-3-ol or a salt thereof has an effect of reducing the amount of amyloid ? protein in the brain parenchyma, and thus is effective as an agent for reducing the amount of amyloid ? protein in the brain. Disease in which the amount of amyloid ? protein in the brain is increased, such as Alzheimer's disease, can be prevented or treated by administering 1-(3-(2-(1-benzothiophen-5-yl)ethoxy)propyl)azetidin-3-ol or a salt thereof.
