    TOKYO, Nov 24, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Eisai Co., Ltd. announced today that the latest data on its antiepileptic drugs (AED) perampanel (product name: Fycompa) and rufinamide (product name: Inovelon, U.S. product name: BANZEL) will be presented at the 71st American Epilepsy Society (AES) Annual Meeting to be held from December 1 to 5, 2017 in Washington D.C. in the United States.

    As major presentations, for perampanel this includes a report on the extrapolation of data from Phase III clinical studies on adjunctive treatment to evaluate perampanel for use as monotherapy for partial seizures. Regarding rufinamide, a poster presentation will be given on long-term safety and efficacy of rufinamide for patients with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS) in a real-world setting in Japan. A total of nine poster presentations will be given at this year's AES meeting.

    Perampanel is a first-in-class AED discovered at Eisai's Tsukuba Research Laboratories. It is available in tablet form to be taken once daily, and a new oral suspension formulation has been approved and is being marketed in the United States. A highly selective, noncompetitive AMPA receptor antagonist that reduces neuronal hyperexcitation associated with seizures by targeting glutamate activity at postsynaptic AMPA receptors, it is approved in countries around the world as an adjunctive therapy for the treatment of partial-onset seizures with or without secondarily generalized seizures, and primary generalized tonic-clonic seizures in patients with epilepsy 12 years of age and older. Furthermore, perampanel is approved for use as monotherapy for partial-onset seizures in patients with epilepsy 12 years of age and older in the United States.

    Rufinamide is believed to exert its antiepileptic effects by regulating activity of voltage-gated sodium channels in the brain involved in the overexcitement of neurons that potentially causes seizures, so as to prolong their inactive state. The agent is approved as an adjunctive therapy to other AEDs in the treatment of seizures associated with LGS in Europe and the United States. In Japan, the agent is approved as an adjunctive therapy to other AEDs in the treatment of tonic and atonic seizures associated with LGS when therapy with other AEDs is considered inadequate.

    Eisai considers neurology a therapeutic area of focus, and strives to maximize the value of perampanel and rufinamide to further contribute to addressing the diverse needs of, as well as increasing the benefits provided to, patients with epilepsy and their families.

    AMSTERDAM, Nov 28, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - A majority (70%) of consumers would stop doing business with a company if it experienced a data breach, according to a survey of more than 10,000 consumers worldwide conducted on behalf of Gemalto, the world leader in digital security. In addition, seven in ten consumers (69%) feel businesses don't take the security of customer data very seriously.

    Despite these concerns, the Gemalto study found that consumers are failing to adequately secure themselves, with over half (56%) still using the same password for multiple online accounts. Even when businesses offer robust security solutions, such as two-factor authentication, two fifths (41%) of consumers admit to not using the technology to secure social media accounts, leaving them vulnerable to data breaches.

    This may be because the majority of consumers (62%) believe the business holding their data is mostly responsible for its security. This is resulting in businesses being forced to take additional steps to protect consumers and enforce robust security measures, as well as educate them on the benefits of adopting these. Retailers (61%), banks (59%) and social media sites (58%) were found to have a lot of work to do, with these being sectors that consumers would leave if they suffered a breach.

    "Consumers are evidently happy to relinquish the responsibility of protecting their data to a business, but are expecting it to be kept secure without any effort on their part," says Jason Hart, CTO, Identity and Data Protection at Gemalto. "In the face of upcoming data regulations such as GDPR, it's now up to businesses to ensure they are forcing security protocols on their customers to keep data secure. It's no longer enough to offer these solutions as an option. These protocols must be mandatory from the start - otherwise businesses will face not only financial consequences, but also potentially legal action from consumers."

    Despite their behaviour, consumers' security concerns are high, as two thirds (67%) worry they will be victims of a data breach in the near future. Consequently, consumers now hold businesses accountable - if their data is stolen, the majority (93%) of consumers would take or consider taking legal action against the compromised business.

    Consumers Trust Some Industries More Than Others

    When it comes to the businesses that consumers trust least, over half (58%) believe that social media sites are one of the biggest threats to their data, with one in five (20%) fearful of travel sites - worryingly, one in ten (9%) think no sites pose a risk to them.

    On the other hand, a third (33%) of consumers trust banks the most with their personal data, despite them being frequent targets and victims of data breaches, with industry certified bodies (12%), device manufacturers (11%) and the government (10%) next on the list.

    Hart continues, "It's astonishing that consumers are now putting their own data at risk, by failing to use these measures, despite growing concerns around their security. It's resulting in an alarming amount of breaches - 80% - being caused by weak or previously stolen credentials. Something has to change soon on both the business and consumer sides or this is only going to get worse."

    TOKYO, Nov 28, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - NTT DOCOMO, INC. announced today that in collaboration with Gemalto, it has developed the world's first(1) multi-profile SIM for use through multi-carrier collaborations that can allow users to switch between profiles, which include data such as contract information and telephone numbers, on their smartphone or tablet in each country. The solution combines robust security with ease of use, drawing on DOCOMO's experience in international communications services and Gemalto's telecommunications know-how. The commercial launch is expected sometime in fiscal 2018(2).

    By inserting the SIM into a smartphone or tablet(3), customers planning to stay overseas long term, such as expatriates and students, can not only access DOCOMO's network while in Japan, but also enjoy voice and data communications services provided directly by affiliated carriers(4) in their respective service areas overseas, without needing to insert the SIM card of a local carrier or carry a rental device.

    Customers will be able to arrange to receive service from an affiliated carrier so that once they arrive overseas they can make calls and access the Internet from the moment they touch down.

    DOCOMO and Gemalto have been verifying the feasibility of their multi-profile SIM in joint tests with Conexus Mobile Alliance(5) carriers since 2016. The newest tests will be conducted with TrueMove H in Thailand and VNPT in Vietnam from December to next March. Corporate customers traveling between Japan and these countries will use the data services provide by the multi-profile SIM, and a quality evaluation will be made based on their experiences.

    DOCOMO will continue to work with partners to inspire people around the world through high-quality mobile connectivity anytime, anywhere and greater ease and convenience than ever before.

    (1) As of November 13, 2017, as researched by DOCOMO.
    (2) The service launch date, available countries and regions, subscription structure and conditions of use have not yet been decided.
    (3) Compatibility with all smartphones and tablets is not guaranteed. The SIM lock must be removed prior to using overseas-carrier networks.
    (4) Limited to carriers affiliated with DOCOMO.
    (5) The Conexus Mobile Alliance is an Asia-Pacific mobile carrier alliance established in April 2006. The alliance currently comprises nine companies, including DOCOMO.

    Lessons from the Social category of the 2017 WARC Awards

    LONDON, Nov 28, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - WARC, the global authority on advertising and media effectiveness, has today released this year's Social Strategy Report, an analysis of the shortlisted and winning campaigns in the Effective Social Strategy category of the 2017 WARC Awards, a worldwide search for next-generation marketing effectiveness, to establish current key drivers of social effectiveness.

    Lucy Aitken, Case Study Editor, WARC, says: "Increasingly campaigns are becoming social by design and not simply a small part of a broader marketing initiative; and increasingly we're seeing campaigns effectively deploying newer engagement tools on social platforms, which are having a significant impact on brand performance or are actually influencing consumer behaviour.

    "By publishing our findings and recommendations in this Social Strategy Report, we hope to bring clarity to the link between social strategies and business results, currently one of the most important issues in marketing and communications."

    WARC's Social Strategy Report 2017 highlights the following key learnings:

    Become the news: For social campaigns to be successful, they have to compete against the news cycle and other demands on people's attention.

    Quinn Kilbury, Senior Brand Director, Heineken USA and chair of the judging panel for the Effective Social Strategy category in this year's WARC Awards, recommends: "You need to become part of your consumers' news feeds. You need to become the news... Your brand, your campaign, need to be useful or it will be ignored."

    He added: "Great ideas that can tap into the news cycle don't need big budgets. They just need to be noticed and then the power of social networks can take over."

    Prioritise people: Ben Shaw, Head of BBH Live and Jack Colchester, Senior Data Strategist of BBH London, winners of the 2017 Effective Social Strategy Grand Prix - KFC's Dirty Louisiana campaign, recommend that all social strategists "need to prioritise people, their interests, their habits and passions. These insights create great work. Great work is famous work. Famous work makes marketing investment more effective."

    They added: "Audience-first insights should inform the creative territory. People's attention is out there, we just need to earn it, not buy it."

    Focus more on metrics: Highly recommended is an end to short-term metrics such as view-throughs and impressions.

    Jury member Fran Cassidy, Founder of Cassidy Media Partnership, calls for greater objectivity, saying: "It is increasingly important that brands themselves collect their own social effectiveness data and focus more attention on planning and measurement rather than rely on data from the platform owner."

    Set clear objectives: Social strategies need more emphasis on what their objective is at the very start. Given that social is now being more closely aligned with sales targets, proper objective-setting is vital to social's evolution.

    Fran Cassidy recommends that "Brands should move away from their addiction to metrics based on reach, views and media equivalents, towards metrics that matter, those based on building brand health, relevance and profit."

    WARC Datapoints - Social Strategy 2017
    - 14% of shortlisted campaigns were seen as long-term
    - 29% of shortlisted campaigns have no clear or primary objective for their social campaign
    - 40% of shortlisted campaigns used social to successfully build awareness and buzz
    - 57% of shortlisted campaigns had a timespan of six months or less
    - 57% of shortlisted campaigns were integrated into the broader marketing mix
    - Originality is still the most important feature for a successful social campaign
    - Video continues to dominate social
    - Celebrity involvement continues to rank highly, in particular for social campaigns from Asia and MENA
    The Social Strategy Report - Lessons from the social category of the 2017 WARC Awards is now available in full to WARC subscribers on warc.com

    The WARC Awards 2018 is now open for entries with submissions being accepted into four categories: Effective Social Strategy - to be chaired by Elizabeth Windram, Director, Brand and Advertising, JetBlue Airways - Effective Content Strategy, Effective Use of Brand Purpose and Effective Innovation.

    PCS: Nighttime Pedestrians and Cyclists
    LTA
    - Broadened scope of protection from severe accidents
    - Additional advanced driving support functions
    - Completion of rollout of 1st generation Toyota Safety Sense in almost all passenger cars in Japan, North America, and Europe

    Toyota City, Japan, Nov 29, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) will further contribute to accident reduction by progressively rolling out the second-generation Toyota Safety Sense--enhanced from the set of active safety packages first introduced in 2015--in its lineup from 2018.

    Toyota Safety Sense is a set of active safety packages developed to reduce accidents guided by the concept of supporting drivers under the assumption that they will drive safely, and at the same time, mitigating damage should an accident occur. It comprises several functions, and its key features include the following:
    - Pre-Collision System (PCS), which helps prevent and mitigate collisions with vehicles and pedestrians ahead
    - Lane Departure Alert (LDA), which helps prevent vehicles from departing from their lanes
    - Automatic High Beam (AHB), which helps ensure optimal forward visibility during nighttime driving

    The second-generation Toyota Safety Sense being rolled out in 2018 will continue to utilize the single-lens camera and millimeter-wave radar currently used in Toyota Safety Sense P. It will be further enhanced with the following to prevent accidents and reduce the number of deaths and injuries from traffic accidents, and ease driver burden:
    - Expansion of the scope of hazard detection, and improving functionality such as through improvements to the performance of the camera and radar
    - Utilization of the advanced driving support feature Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)(1)
    - Reduction of the size of the unit to improve ease of installation

    Further details

    1. Expanded scope of hazard detection and improved functionality
    Adding nighttime pedestrians and cyclists to the scope of hazards detected by PCS
    - The current system is unable to detect nighttime pedestrians and cyclists. Adding these to the scope further broadens protection from causes of severe accidents.

    PCS: Nighttime Pedestrians and Cyclists

    Road Sign Assist (RSA)
    - Key road signs are read by the camera and displayed in the instrument panel.
    - This feature supports even safer driving by helping to reduce the possibility of overlooking speed limits and traffic rules, such as stop signs, no entry signs, and no overtaking signs.

    2. Advanced driving support features
    Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) has been newly adopted to achieve such aims as easing driver burden and improving convenience.
    - It keeps the vehicle in the center of a lane by assisting the driver in steering control when using Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. By accruing features such as Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, driver burden can be reduced in locations such as expressways, allowing drivers to drive with greater ease.
    - LTA also comes with Lane Departure Alert (LDA). With the ability to recognize shoulders on straight roads without white lane markings, it gives alerts when deviating off roads, and assists in regaining track.

    The second-generation Toyota Safety Sense will be progressively rolled out mainly in Japan, North America, and Europe, commencing with new models being launched at the start of 2018. Toyota is looking into rolling it out in other regions once confirming the usage environment in each region.

    The rollout (either as a standard or optional configuration) of the first-generation Toyota Safety Sense in almost all passenger cars in Japan, North America, and Europe has recently been completed. Already, a total of five million vehicles worldwide are fitted with Toyota Safety Sense. In actual traffic conditions, effects of accident reduction(2) can be seen, such as an approximately 50 percent reduction in rear-end collisions and approximately 90 percent in combination with the Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS).

    To develop a safe transportation society, it is necessary to conduct safety-related activities based on the following three pillars: 1) vehicle-based initiatives that lead to the manufacture of truly safe vehicles by incorporating a cycle of activities including accident surveys, analysis of accident causes, and development and commercialization of countermeasure technologies; 2) human-based initiatives such as educational programs for drivers and children; and 3) traffic environment-based initiatives including Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) measures.

    Besides expanding the adoption of active safety technologies, such as introducing the second-generation Toyota Safety Sense, Toyota is increasing opportunities for understanding Toyota Safety Sense and ICS to promote Support Toyota programs with the aim of enhancing customer safety and assurance. To contribute to its ultimate goal of the elimination of traffic fatalities and injuries, Toyota will continue its three-pillar approach in efforts to address people, cars, and the traffic environment.

    (1) Excludes some models
    (2) The accident incidence rate is calculated by dividing the number of accidents by the number of vehicles in operation (converted from the number of vehicles sold based on the timing of sale).

    HONG KONG, Nov 29, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - Great Harvest Maeta Group Holdings Limited ("Great Harvest", the "Group"; stock code: 3683.HK) announces its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2017 ("the review period").

    During the review period, the Group's business was under sound operation. The revenue of the Group increased from about US$3.8 million for the six months ended 30 September 2016 to about US$6.3 million for the six months ended 30 September 2017, representing an increase of about 63.8 %. The revenue comprised chartering income of approximately US$6.3 million (approximately 100% revenue of the Group, 1H 2016: approximately US$3.6 million) and there is no interest income from the money lending business (1H 2016: approximately US$0.2 million). The average daily TCE of the Group's fleet for the six months ended 30 September 2017 was approximately US$8,800 (1H 2016: approximately US$5,000)

    Being prompted by the increase of the seasonal demand for marine transportation of bulk grains in South America in early 2017, the spot freight rate of panamas vessels in dry bulk marine transportation market saw its hike, while that of other types of vessels increased. The average Baltic Dry Index for panamax vessels was 1,154 points during the period from 1 April 2017 to 30 September 2017, representing an increase of about 73% as compared to the corresponding period of 2016. The market prediction and statistics from vessel broker companies expect the demand of dry bulk marine transportation to achieve a growth of approximately 4%, which in turn translates to a growth in vessels of approximately 2.5% this year. Thus the oversupply of vessels would soon be alleviated, and it is also a key factor for the rise of this year's spot freight rate.

    As at 30 September 2017, the Group's fleet comprised four panamax dry bulk vessels, namely GH FORTUNE, GH POWER, GH GLORY and GH HARMONY, with a total carrying capacity of approximately 319,923 dwt. The fleet maintained a high operational level with an occupancy rate of 99.53% during the review period. The average daily charter rate of the vessels was approximately US$8,762, representing an increase of US$3,815 as compared to the corresponding period last year, with a growth rate of approximately 77%.

    Mr. Yan Kim Po, the chairman of Great Harvest Maeta Group Holdings Limited said, the Group will seek to charter out its vessels to reputable charterers while endeavouring to provide the best services to charterers, so as to maintain a favourable corporate image. In addition, in order to reduce operational risks and achieve better operational efficiency, the Group will continue to uphold its proactive yet prudent operating strategies.

    On the other hand, the projects in the lands located in Haikou ("the project") is currently under the procedure of construction application, as the Haikou local government has finalized its plans at the second half of 2017. The Group has planned to seek the possibility to redevelop the project into "cultural and tourism real estate" project to construct villas, LOFT apartment, low density villas, retail space, car parking and other ancillary facilities with approximately 130,000 square meters. Top Build Group Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Great Harvest, indirectly through its subsidiaries holds 91% interest in a company in the PRC which holds the Lands located at Haikou.

    Mr. Yan Kim Po concluded, "The Group will maintain its prudent operating strategies by enhancing the daily management of vessels, continue to identify new development opportunities, expand its scope of business and diversify its income streams by expanding more operations other than the shipping business. The Group's development strategy of entering into property investment and develop business was justified, as after the Chinese Lunar New Year of 2017, the land premium and prices of real estates in Haikou rocket along the domestic residential needs. Looking forward, the Group will uphold its proactive and prudent operating strategies, to achieve a better result, to bring a more fruitful return to our shareholders."

    Great Harvest Maeta Group Holdings Limited
    The Group is principally engaged in chartering out its own dry bulk vessels and property investment and development. For the six months ended 30 September 2017, the Group's fleet size is 319,923 dwt, including 4 panamax dry bulk vessels, which are GH FORTUNE, GH POWER, GH GLORY and GH HARMONY, the average age of the Company's fleet is 11 years with the fleet occupancy rate at approximately 99.53%.

    Toyota City, Japan, Nov 29, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Lexus will further contribute to accident reduction by progressively rolling out the second-generation Lexus Safety System +--enhanced from the set of active safety packages first introduced in 2015--in its lineup from 2018 in mainly Japan, North America, and Europe.

    Lexus Safety System + is a set of active safety packages developed to reduce accidents guided by the concept of supporting drivers under the assumption that they will drive safely, and at the same time, mitigating damage should an accident occur. It comprises several functions, and its key features include the following:

    - Pre-Collision System (PCS), which helps prevent and mitigate collisions with preceding vehicles or pedestrians
    - Lane Departure Alert (LDA), which helps prevent vehicles from departing from their lanes
    - Automatic High Beam (AHB), which helps ensure optimal forward visibility during nighttime driving

    Based on the concept of prioritizing the speedy development of advanced, world-class safety technology and its popularization, Lexus will roll out the pre-collision support of Lexus Safety System + A, an advanced active safety package installed in the new "LS," and some functions of its Lexus CoDrive advanced driving support in the 2nd generation Lexus Safety System +. Specifically, it will continue to utilize the single-lens camera and millimeter-wave radar currently used in the 1st generation Lexus Safety System +. It will be further enhanced with the following to prevent accidents and reduce the number of deaths and injuries from traffic accidents, and reduce driver burden.

    - Expanding the scope of hazard detection, and improving functionality such as through improvements to the performance of the camera and radar
    - Utilizing the advanced driving support feature Lane Tracing Assist (LTA)(1) and increasing the number of Lexus CoDrive(2) cars
    - Reducing the size of the unit to improve ease of installation

    Further details

    1. Expanded scope of hazard detection and improved functionality

    Adding nighttime pedestrians and cyclists to the scope of hazards detected by PCS
    - The current system is unable to detect nighttime pedestrians and cyclists. Adding these to the scope further broadens protection from causes of severe accidents.

    Road Sign Assist (RSA)(3)
    - Key road signs are read by the camera and displayed in the instrument panel.
    - This feature supports even safer driving by helping to reduce the possibility of overlooking speed limits and traffic rules, such as stop signs, no entry signs, and no overtaking signs.

    2. Advanced driving support Lexus CoDrive

    Lane Tracing Assist (LTA) has been newly adopted to achieve such aims as reducing driver burden and improving convenience.
    - It keeps the vehicle in the center of a lane by assisting the driver in steering control when using Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. By accruing features such as Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, driver burden can be reduced in locations such as expressways, allowing drivers to drive with greater ease.
    - LTA also comes with Lane Departure Alert (LDA). With the ability to recognize shoulders on straight roads without white lane markings, it gives alerts (display, buzzer or steering vibration) when deviating off roads, and assists in regaining track

    The rollout (either as a standard or optional configuration) of the 1st generation Lexus Safety System + in almost all Lexus cars in Japan, North America, and Europe has recently been completed.

    To contribute to its ultimate goal of the elimination of traffic fatalities and injuries, Lexus will continue its three-pillar approach in efforts to address people, cars, and the traffic environment.
