  • Patent number: 7582305
    Abstract: The present invention is to provide a safe antidiarrheal agent and a method for suppressing diarrhea by which an efficient antidiarrheal effect is achieved without using antibiotics or synthetic antibacterial agents that have been conventionally used against infections in livestock and poultry. Antibiotic-resistant pathogenic infections can also be prevented and treated by the present invention. The antidiarrheal agent for livestock and poultry comprising heat-killed bacteria of Enterococcus faecalis EC-12 (FERM ABP-10284) or a treated product thereof as an active ingredient is orally administered to livestock and poultry, particularly to breast-feeding sows and piglets around the weaning period.

  • Patent number: 5359909
    Abstract: A control cable adjusting arrangement for a gear shift locking arrangement includes a holder portion which accepts an inner cable of a control cable in one end thereof. An outer cable encasing the inner cable is retained by a bracket. The other end of the holder accepts an end of a control rod associated with a gear shift lever. Disposed around the holder is a slider portion movable between a locked and unlocked position determined between two stopper flanges formed on the outer circumference of the holder. The holder and slider are made of an elastic material such as rubber and an end of the holder which accepts the end of the control rod has a flared outer circumference.

  • Patent number: 5309784
    Abstract: A gear shift apparatus includes a shaft having a first axis extending laterally with respect to a vehicle body. A bracket is secured to a pivot pin rotatable about a second axis extending laterally with respect to the first axis. A gear shift lever is secured to the bracket for unitary rotation therewith about the second axis. A sleeve is fixed to the gear shift lever for unitary motion therewith. A check ball is supported by the sleeve and urged against a cam surface of a stationary position plate. The cam surface has a plurality of recesses engaged with the check ball.

  • Patent number: 5156060
    Abstract: A shift lever control device is disclosed which comprises a pivot structure for permitting a shift lever to pivot in both first and second directions which are perpendicular to each other; a bracket which is pivotal together with the shift lever in the first direction and has a mounting portion; a cam plate rotatably mounted on the mounting portion and engaged with the shift lever so that when the shift lever pivots in the second direction, the cam plate is rotated on the mounting portion; a check structure for making the rotational movement of the cam plate in a snap action manner; a structure defining a cam surface on a periphery of the cam plate; and a single switch having a sensor pin which slidably contacts with the cam surface of the cam plate, so that the switch selectively assumes ON and OFF conditions in response to the rotational movement of the cam plate.
