    Looks like it's a patent application, not a research paper.

    It is, but if they've got as far as filing a patent application, then surely they've done quite a bit of research beforehand?

    Yamamoto is the first listed agent, but it's probably the inventor names that we are likely to find on papers.

    There's a T Yamamura who was a joint author with Komaroff, discussed here:
    Neuroinflammation/PET research out of Japan

    This thread mentions Wakiro Sato

    Sometimes, but the priority is to nail down the finding as a patent before doing the research and potentially giving the game away, where competitors can steal a march on them. So if you even suspect a useful finding, you patent it. I suspect most such patents never work out, and you never hear of them again.

    I always believed that taking Japanese language lessons would be put to use one day :
