Contributing to research for conquering cancer and lifestyle diseases
Early Detection of Diseases
Developing new patient-friendly testing methods
Development of Testing Methods for Early Detection of Disease Risks
Joint development with Ajinomoto Co., Inc.
Simultaneously evaluate risks for a variety of disorders based on the balance of amino acid concentrations in blood
(Screening for risks of 8 cancers and lifestyle diseases from a blood test)
Relationship between the balance of amino acid concentrations and various disorder risks
|Cancer||Stomach cancer｜Lung cancer｜
Colon cancer｜Pancreatic cancer｜Prostate cancer｜Breast cancer｜Uterine cancer｜Ovarian cancer
|Lifestyle diseases||Stroke｜Heart attack｜Diabetes｜Probability of cognitive function loss|
Quick diagnosis during surgery
Combination of Medical Imaging and Analytical Instrument Technologies
Joint development with Tohoku University
- ・The treatment area can be determined on-the-spot during pre-surgery catheter blood collection by displaying both the blood collection position image and blood analysis data on the same screen in real-time.
- ・Surgery can be started as soon as the treatment area is determined to minimize stress on the patient.
Development of AVS Support System for Primary Aldosteronism
Support for New Cancer Treatment Method (Photoimmunotherapy)
Photoimmunotherapy is a new cancer treatment technique that selectively concentrates a photosensitive substance near cancer cells and then irradiates the substance with a specific wavelength of light to cause cancer cells to become necrotic.
Mechanism of cancer cell necrosis
Supports visualization and recording during photoimmunotherapy light irradiation
Monitoring with a near-infrared camera
Example of experiment with mice
