  • Patent number: 10858008
    Abstract: A control apparatus for a hybrid vehicle in which a friction clutch and a one-way clutch are disposed in parallel with each other between an engine and an electric motor. The transmission is disposed between the electric motor and drive wheels. The friction clutch connects and disconnects between the engine and the electric motor. The one-way clutch transmits a drive force in a direction from the engine toward the electric motor. The vehicle runs in (i) an electric-motor running mode with operation of the electric motor or (ii) a hybrid running mode with operation of the engine. The control apparatus is configured, upon execution of a shift-up action of the transmission with the hybrid running mode being selected and with the friction clutch being in a non-engaged state, to execute a shift-up action control by which the shift-up action starts to be executed after the friction clutch has been engaged.

  • Publication number: 20200199689
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide a method for predicting the effectiveness of an angiogenesis inhibitor in a subject suffering from a tumor. Provided is a method comprising a step of testing for the presence or absence of an a mutation or loss of expression of B-Raf and PTEN in a sample of tumor tissue from the subject. By using the presence or absence of or a mutation or loss of expression of B-Raf and PTEN as an indicator, this method enables the antitumor effectiveness of the angiogenesis inhibitor to be predicted without administering the angiogenesis inhibitor to the subject.

  • Patent number: 10538249
    Abstract: A control apparatus for a vehicle provided with (a) a transmission and (b) a shifting device including (b-1) a shift actuator and (b-2) a shift lever. The shift actuator establishes one of shift ranges in the transmission such that the established one of the shift ranges corresponds to a selected one of shift-lever operating positions of the shift lever. When a switching request is made to request the transmission to be switched to an opposite-direction drive range that is for driving the vehicle in a direction opposite to a current running direction of the vehicle, during running of the vehicle with a speed being not lower than a given value, the control apparatus rejects the switching request. The control apparatus rejects the switching request, also during running of the vehicle with the running speed being lower than the given value, if the vehicle is running on a downhill road.
