  • Publication number: 20200071407
    Abstract: Agents that inhibit the dimerizaton of a prototypic galectin such as galectin-7 are described. These agents, for example antibodies and peptides, bind to a domain corresponding to residues 13-25, 86-108 and/or 129-135 of human galectin-7, The use of such agents to inhibit a biological, physiological and/or pathological process that involves prototypic galectin dirnerization, for example for, the inhibition of galectin-7-mediated apoptosis and the treatment of galectin-7-expressing cancers, is also described.

  • Patent number: 10293252
    Abstract: An image processing device includes an image acquirer that acquires data of a shot image obtained by a camera, a depth image acquirer that acquires a depth image obtained by representing a distance of a subject from the camera in the depth direction as a pixel value, and a first object detector that detects a region of an image of a first object from the shot image or the depth image. The image processing device further includes a second object detector that detects a region of an image of a second object based on the region of the image of the first object and the pixel value in the depth image, a clipping region decider that decides a clipping region including at least the regions of the images of the first and second objects, and a display image generator that generates a display image by using the clipping region.
