Provided are a ramp signal calibration apparatus and method and image sensor including the apparatus. The apparatus includes: an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) including a trimmable transistor having a gain value that varies according to stored data , and configured to receive a ramp signal in a state where the gain value is a first gain value, and to output first and second output signals; a subtractor configured to calculate a difference between the first and second output signals; a digital comparator configured to compare the difference with a reference value and to determine whether a slope of the ramp signal has changed; and a counter configured to change the stored data based on whether the slope of the ramp signal has changed, wherein when the counter changes the data, the first gain value of the trimmable transistor is changed to a second gain value according to the changed data.

Disclosed is a wire knot delivery device, and more particularly, a wire knot delivery device for delivering and maintaining a knot of a medical wire in a medical procedure. The wire knot delivery device includes a first body, a second body parallel to the first body and moving relative to the first body, a first catching part connected to a side of the first body and caught by a side of the knot during the delivery of the knot, and a second catching part connected to a side of the second body and caught by another side of the knot during the delivery of the knot. As the second body moves, a distance between the first catching part and the second catching part is adjusted.

Disclosed is a pullback system, which has a simplified and miniaturized structure and an advanced function. The pullback system includes a central unit, which includes a rotation transducer part that rotates, and a stretchable part that is connected to a side of the rotation transducer part to rotate together with the rotation transducer part and that has a stretchable property, and a first unit rotatably coupled to a portion of the central unit. As the first unit moves in a first direction oriented from the rotation transducer part to the stretchable part or in a second direction opposite to the first direction, the stretchable part contacts or stretches.

Disclosed is a method and kit of detecting a target material using an aptamer, and more particularly to a method and kit for detecting a target material, in which a sample and a second aptamer are added to a first aptamer immobilized on a solid phase so as to form a bond sandwiched between the first aptamer, the target material and the second aptamer, to an FET sensor-based method and kit for detecting a target material, and to an AAO sensor-based method and kit for detecting a target material. The method for a target material using an aptamer can detect even low-molecular-weight materials which were difficult to detect in the prior art, thereby enabling detection of disease-related metabolites, environmental pollutants and food toxins in solutions. In addition, the detection method is a direct and simple method and is highly cost-effective, because it uses the aptamer which can be consistently reproduced and can be produced at low costs.

Provided is a method for preventing or treating hepatitis C by administrating a composition including, as an active ingredient, a Vitidis Vinferae Radix extract or a fraction thereof and, more specifically, to a Vitidis Vinferae Radix extract which is extracted with water and alcohol or a mixed solvent thereof, or a fraction thereof, which have remarkably low hepatotoxicity and exhibit an excellent effect of selectively inhibiting genome replication of a hepatitis C virus, and thus can be useful for preventing or treating hepatitis C.
