  • Publication number: 20210054061
    Abstract: Provided is a substance capable of effectively suppressing cancer metastasis or a pharmaceutical composition that effectively acts on an inflammatory disease. The pharmaceutical composition is a pharmaceutical composition containing, as an active ingredient, an antibody or an antibody fragment thereof having antigen-binding activity for an S100A8/A9 heterodimer, and blocks interaction between S100A8/A9 and a group of receptors therefor, to thereby strongly suppress cancer metastasis both in vitro and in vivo, or alleviate inflammation. That is, the anti-S100A8/A9 antibody or the antibody fragment thereof can strongly suppress cancer metastasis or alleviate inflammation, by virtue of its blocking action on the interaction between S100A8/A9 and the group of receptors therefor.

  • Patent number: 10882346
    Abstract: An ink jet recording apparatus of a line-recording-head type includes one or more recording heads using the same ink and performs recording of an image by conveying a recording medium using multiple passes through a recording region of the recording head while the recording medium is repeatedly conveyed backward and forward to speed up recording and improve image quality. A recording head is controlled to provide that an amount of ink applied to a recording medium in a case where the recording medium is conveyed at a first speed is smaller than an amount of ink applied to the recording medium in a case where the recording medium is conveyed at a second speed higher than the first speed in both of a case where the recording medium is accelerated and a case where the recording medium is decelerated.
