  • Patent number: 11449098
    Abstract: A mobile terminal includes a first frame, a second frame movable from the first frame in a first direction, a third frame movable in the first direction with respect to the second frame, a flexible display including a first region coupled to the first frame, a second region coupled to the third frame, and a third region bendably disposed between the first region and the second region, and a display frame bendably coupled to a rear surface of the third region. The second frame includes a side portion positioned facing in a third direction perpendicular to the first direction and a guide rail formed on the side portion. The display frame has a guide hook inserted into the guide rail. Even when the display is extended, the mobile terminal keeps the display flat such that the display unit is prevented from being separated or sagged from the frame.

  • Patent number: 7666864
    Abstract: The current invention provides a series of bicyclic nitroimidazole-substituted phenyl oxazolidinones in which a bicyclic nitroimidazole pharmacophore is covalently bonded to a phenyl oxazolidinone, their pharmaceutical compositions, and the method of use of the compositions for prevention and treatment of bacterial infections. The bicyclic nitroimidazole-substituted phenyl oxazolidinones possess surprising antibacterial activity against wild-type and resistant strains of pathogens, and are therefore useful for the prevention, control and treatment of a number of human and veterinary bacterial infections caused by these pathogens, such as Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
