[Problem] To provide a neurogenic baroreflex sensitivity measurement device, neurogenic baroreflex sensitivity measurement program and neurogenic baroreflex sensitivity measurement method capable of easily and objectively measuring neurogenic baroreflex sensitivity that is not dependent on vascular hardness without using blood pressure or pulsations in the diameter of the carotid artery. [Solution] The neurogenic baroreflex sensitivity measurement device comprises: a pulse wave data-acquiring unit (


Disclosed is a method of diagnosing graft-versus-host disease, comprising measuring the level of CCL8 protein in a sample obtained from a subject as an indicator for the diagnosis or course of graft-versus-host disease. Also a diagnostic reagent for graft-versus-host disease comprising an anti-CCL8 antibody is disclosed. The method of the present invention enables diagnosis of the onset of graft-versus-host disease and monitoring of the progress, in particular, differential diagnosis between graft-versus-host disease and an infectious disease. The present invention also provides a method for treating graft-versus-host disease utilizing the anti-CCL8 antibody.

The object aims to comprehensively analyze miRNA that undergoes epigenetic silencing in cancer to identify miRNA associated with cancer, elucidate the role of the identified miRNA in cancer, and develop a novel method for detecting cancer and a novel therapeutic agent for cancer both of which relate to the miRNA. Disclosed is a method for detecting cancer in a subject, which comprises detecting methylated CpG in a CpG island located in a promoter region of a microRNA 34b gene and/or a microRNA 34c gene in a biological sample collected from the subject. Also disclosed is a therapeutic agent for cancer, which comprises a nucleic acid encoding a BTG4 gene or BTG4, or comprises a nucleic acid encoding a miR-34b gene and/or an miR-34c gene or miR-34b and/or miR-34c.
