In this article, the contents of my doctoral thesis are briefly reviewed. I have developed 10 GPa class micro diamond anvil cell (DAC) in order to investigate high-pressure effect on filled skutterudite compounds. In addition, a way of setting up for high-pressure resistivity measurements using a four-probe method was established. Here, I focus on the heavy fermion superconductor PrOs4Sb12 and present pressure and magnetic field effects on the electrical resistivity by using the newly developed DAC with pressures up to 10 GPa.
