  • Publication number: 20210228590
    Abstract: A method for treating influenza is described. The disclosed method generally involves administering an effective amount of a compound, for example baloxavir marboxil, to a subject having influenza, where the compound is administered initially at least about 48 hours after an onset of influenza. Generally, the effective amount is sufficient to alleviate a symptom of influenza in the subject as compared to a symptom that the subject has when the compound is first administered to the subject.

  • Publication number: 20200330473
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for preventing transmission of influenza, wherein said method comprises administering an effective amount of a compound to a patient having an influenza virus infection, herein referred to as “index patient”, wherein the compound has one of the formulae (I) and (II), or its pharmaceutically acceptable salt. The compound to be used in the present invention reduces infectivity of the influenza virus of the index patient, and therefore, reduces the risk of the index patient to trigger an influenza epidemic or an influenza pandemic as compared to a control patient.

  • Patent number: 10096720
    Abstract: To provide a semiconductor device with high design flexibility. A first transistor and a second transistor having different electrical characteristics from those of the first transistor are provided over the same layer without significantly increasing the number of manufacturing steps. A semiconductor layer where a channel of the first transistor is formed and a semiconductor layer where a channel of the second transistor is formed are formed using semiconductor materials having different electron affinities. When an oxide semiconductor is used for the semiconductor layer, an insulating layer containing excess oxygen is used as an insulating layer below the semiconductor layer. By increasing the thickness of the insulating layer, a large amount of oxygen can be supplied to the semiconductor layer.
