  • Publication number: 20220178932
    Abstract: An object of the invention is to provide a method for detecting cancer in a simple and highly accurate manner, and a reagent that can be used in the method. A method for detecting cancer (excluding renal cell cancer), which comprises measuring the level of Azurocidin (AZU1) in a sample, in which it is determined that cancer is detected when a measured value exceeds a preset reference value. The cancer is preferably selected from the group consisting of stomach cancer, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and lung cancer. A reagent containing an antibody that specifically recognizes AZU1 is used in detecting cancer (excluding renal cell cancer).

  • Publication number: 20210327114
    Abstract: An example of an image display system includes a goggle apparatus having a display section. A virtual camera and a user interface are placed in a virtual space. The orientation of the virtual camera in the virtual space is controlled in accordance with the orientation of the goggle apparatus. When the goggle apparatus rotates by an angle greater than or equal to a predetermined angle in a pitch direction, the user interface is moved to the front of the virtual camera in a yaw direction.

  • Publication number: 20200298114
    Abstract: An example of an image display system includes a goggle apparatus including a display section. A virtual camera and a user interface are placed in a virtual space. In accordance with the orientation of the goggle apparatus, the orientation of the virtual camera in the virtual space is controlled. For example, in a case where the line of sight of the virtual camera rotates in a left direction in a yaw direction and then reverses in a right direction, and when the amount of change in the right direction is greater than or equal to a threshold, the user interface is moved to the front of the virtual camera.

  • Publication number: 20190136171
    Abstract: A well has a pair of side surfaces, and one of the side surfaces is in contact with a compartment of a first channel with a gas-permeable membrane being interposed therebetween and the other side surface is in contact with a compartment of a second channel with a gas-permeable membrane being interposed therebetween. The well is filled with a liquid cell culture medium, and in such a state, a high-concentration gas and a low-concentration gas, which are different in the concentration of a specific component from each other, are allowed to flow through the first and second channels, respectively, to form a concentration distribution of the specific component in the well.
