  • Patent number: 9636883
    Abstract: Score lines are formed on package material. A spout attachment hole is formed in a portion corresponding to a top gusset section of a pouch. A spout is attached to the spout attachment hole. A portion corresponding to a peripheral edge of the top gusset section of the pouch and a portion corresponding to a top edge of a body section of the pouch are heat-sealed, and the package material is cut in the width direction. Portions corresponding to side edges of the body section of the pouch are heat-sealed, and a portion corresponding to a peripheral edge of a bottom gusset section and a portion corresponding to a peripheral edge of a bottom end portion of the body section are heat-sealed. The heat-sealed portions formed at the portions corresponding to the side edges of the body section of the pouch are cut so a spouted pouch package is released.

  • Patent number: 8709812
    Abstract: It is intended to provide a drug to be used in gene therapy which specifically targets abnormal cells such as tumor cells and destroys the same for healing. Namely, a drug comprising, as the active ingredient, a proliferative vector which contains a Survivin promoter proliferating depending on the expression of Survivin. The drug may be used in order to treat tumor. In this drug, use may be made of an adenovirus as the vector. In the adenovirus of this drug, an endogenous promoter of an E1A domain may be substituted with a Survivin promoter.

  • Patent number: 8272062
    Abstract: A content control system capable of controlling delivery destinations of user contents in respective groups, identifying each group through which each content is delivered, and delivering information/advertisements according to the attribution information of the content. In a content control server, group identifying information is set in each user content to be uploaded to or downloaded from a group memory area corresponding to a gateway ID from a terminal through a gateway having a plurality of its subordinate terminals. The information identifies each gateway through which each object content is delivered according to the gateway ID. The control system controls the delivery destination of each content according to the combination of the content delivery route and a table prepared in the content control server.

  • Patent number: 8225358
    Abstract: A content recommendation apparatus that can recommend contents suitable to user's taste immediately even after introduction of the system even if a TV set is used by unspecified users. Among previously-determined recommendation ranks of contents, the content recommendation apparatus of the present invention lowers the recommendation rank of a VOD content that is similar to TV programs broadcast in other media at a prescribed time. As the prescribed time, can be employed a time designated by a user, a time on a prescribed cycle, or a time when a TV program on the air in another media is changed, for example.

  • Patent number: 8034589
    Abstract: Provided is a method of preparing a proliferation-regulated recombinant adenoviral vector effectively, comprising preparing a proliferation-regulated vector plasmid by preparing a restriction enzyme-recognizing sequence in a vector plasmid having a proliferation-regulating unit and having an E1A region, a protein-coding region in a E1B region, a poly(A) signal sequence, and a recombinase-recognizing sequence in that order from upstream, by deleting an endogenous promoter in the E1A region or an endogenous promoter regulating expression of the protein-coding gene in one protein-coding region of the E1B region thereof and inserting the restriction enzyme-recognizing sequences in the deficient site, and introducing a promoter expressing specifically in a target organ in the restriction enzyme-recognizing sequence in the restriction enzyme-recognizing sequence; and additionally, integrating the proliferation-regulated vector plasmid into a vector plasmid having a adenoviral genome prepared by deleting the E1 regi
