Patent
Kagawa University and Gifu University | Date: 2015-07-22

The present invention provides a novel cancer marker for testing a morbidity risk of a cancer. The cancer marker according to the present invention is a prorenin receptor. A test method for testing a morbidity risk of a cancer according to the present invention includes measuring a prorenin receptor expression in a biological specimen obtained from a subject and further includes, for example, a step of comparing a prorenin receptor expression level in the biological specimen obtained from the subject with a reference value to test the morbidity risk of the cancer in the subject. The reference value is a prorenin receptor expression level in a biological specimen obtained from a healthy subject or a cancer patient. When the expression level in the subject is higher than that in the healthy subject or identical to or higher than that in the cancer patient, it can be evaluated that the subject has the mobility risk of the cancer.

The present invention provides a pharmaceutical composition for treating infarction, such as myocardial infarction or cerebral infarction, with a method that is different from conventional therapeutic methods that use a thrombolytic agent or balloon therapy. An autophagy enhancer such as hsa-miR-145 is used as the active ingredient of the pharmaceutical composition for treating infarction. In particular, an autophagy enhancer such as hsa-miR-145 is used in a liposomal state as an active ingredient of the pharmaceutical composition for treating infarction.

A braider and a tube body in which braids are arranged on an outer peripheral surface of a mandrel uniformly even if the diameter of the mandrel is uneven. A braider 1 has bobbin carrier conveyance mechanisms 50A and 50B in which bobbin carriers 40A and 40B are conveyed from traveling tracks W1 and W2 to an outside of the traveling tracks W1 and W2 so as to stop winding of braids Y1 and Y2 onto a mandrel 2 and the bobbin carriers 40A and 40B are conveyed from the outside of the traveling tracks W1 and W2 to the traveling tracks W1 and W2 so as to start the winding of the braids Y1 and Y2 onto the mandrel 2.

An object of the present invention is to provide a novel medical application for use in regenerative medicine that uses pluripotent stem cells (Muse cells). The present invention provides a cell preparation for treating myocardial infarction, and particularly serious massive myocardial infarction and heart failure associated therewith, that contains pluripotent stem cells positive for SSEA-3 isolated from biological mesenchymal tissue or cultured mesenchymal cells. The cell preparation of the present invention is based on a cardiac tissue regeneration mechanism by which Muse cells are made to selectively accumulate in damaged myocardial tissue and differentiate into cardiac muscle in that tissue as a result of intravenous administration of Muse cells to a subject presenting with the aforementioned disorders.


An object of the present invention is to provide an anti-prion compound that has high crystallinity and is highly stable in the crystalline form and to provide a medicament for preventing, ameliorating or treating a prion disease. The present invention provides a maleic acid salt of a compound represented by formula (1):

An object of the present invention is to provide a method, by which an animal species of an animal hair can be specified and quantified, through direct analysis of not DNA existing in a small amount in a sample containing animal hair, but proteins that are major components of animal hair. The present invention provides a method for specifying animal species of animal hair and quantifying an animal hair, comprising analyzing an animal hair sample by mass spectrometry to analyze a protein component such as keratin that is a major protein component of animal hair, specifying the masses, the mass-to-charge ratios (m/z), the LC elution times of the mass-to-charge ratios, and partial sequences useful as markers as analytical results, and thus specifying animal species of animal hair and quantifying the animal hair based thereon.
