  • Publication number: 20200220876
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to an information processing apparatus, an information processing method, a client system, and a control method of the client system that can reduce labor of authentication by a user without reducing a security level of a settlement process. The user wears a wearable device that performs fingerprint authentication and that periodically transmits position information to a bank server. In addition, the user operates a client apparatus including a smartphone, a PC, or the like to execute a settlement process. The client apparatus transmits position information of the client apparatus to a bank server in the settlement process. The bank server reduces a risk score if the wearable device and the client apparatus are at the same position based on the position information of the wearable device and the position information of the client apparatus. The present disclosure can be applied to a settlement processing system.

  • Patent number: 10689650
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods for retaining and expressing physiologically active substances in a target tissue-specific-manner, by administering the physiologically active substances to target submucous tissue. Specifically, the present inventors demonstrated that, when physiologically active substances were directly administered into submucous tissues without using a carrier, the physiologically active substances were effectively and safely retained at the administration sites over long periods without loss and diffusion, and produced the effect acting in a reservoir-like fashion. The physiologically active substances administered as described above were demonstrated to produce the therapeutic effect without having an influence on organs other than the administered organ.
