-We have succeeded in observing the reconstruction of cell nuclei collected from mammoth fossils inside living mouse oocytes. -Mammoth’s cell nuclei were found to have retained biological activity for 28,000 years in permafrost. -This study paves a way for decoding old biological information using cell nuclei of ancient creatures and future leaps of evolutionary biology are expected.
Immuno-pathogenesis of Chronic Pancreatic Diseases Uncovered Applications expected for the treatment of pancreatic diseases and preventive measures for pancreatic cancer - Kindai University
Press Releases • Oct 25, 2018 16:00 UTC
Until now, the barely understood immuno-pathogenesis for chronic inflammation of the pancreas has been uncovered. The pathogenic immune response that is common for both autoimmune pancreatitis and chronic pancreatitis was elucidated for the first time in the world. Applications are expected for new treatments of chronic pancreatic inflammation and new preventive measures for pancreatic cancer.

1.Experiments have shown that the luminol reaction can be used to detect FOB in animals. 2.This is the first standard method to detect FOB in animal models for ulcers and cancers in the digestive system - which is simple, quick, economical and quantitative - making it applicable to use for any research laboratories.
World’s First Demonstration on Efficacy of Drug for Lung Cancer Genetic Mutation Diagnosed with Blood sample using cobas EGFR mutation test v2.Alleviating burden on patients through diagnosis with blood tests
Press Releases • Jul 31, 2018 07:09 UTC
[Key aspects of this study] - World’s first research findings that demonstrate efficacy and safety of a drug which is administered based on genetic screening results. - Efficacy demonstrated by a response rate of 55.1%, which represents the ratio of people whose tumor shrunk. - Potential for partial transition to blood test from endoscopic biopsy, which places a heavy burden on patients.
